Pea Bane

 

Very small pea plant breaking ground

See my little pea?  I went out super early in the mud and the cold to plant him and his kin so that they would have lots of time to grow big and strong before the heat arrived.

What arrived instead?  The bunny brothers!!!

Seriously, what kind of an idiot would lovingly portray vermin such as this?!?  Oh, wait…

Thanks to those two idiot rabbits, my plants never got any larger than in the picture.  If they dared grow over 1″ high, they were chomped off.

 

Garden snake

I tried inviting a snake into the garden, but it turned its head away and lithped thomething about being thcared of bunnies.  I guess this one wasn’t a self-motivated hard worker like that Garden of Eden snake.

Although I have a fence, it didn’t keep the bunny brothers out.  They tunneled in under the tomato plants.  Their tunnel was big enough that it eventually caused the tomato plants to fall over.

 

Snake and dead toad

(Hey snake, why don’t you crawl down that hole?  Snake: “No thankth.  I think I will justh keep eating thith dead toad.”)

I tried using spray made of rotten eggs and garlic and a host of foul things.  The label said that it was supposed to repel all different sorts of animals.Oh gross! The wind shifted!

 

I guess in the manufacturer’s world, “repel” means “come hither”.  Not only did the bunnies like it but so did my dogs.

Mmm...Mummy. What IS that intoxicating scent you're wearing?!?

Come on Ma, just let me off this leash, and your bunny problem will be history!

Why doesn’t the governor force the bunnies wear masks?  It would make it a lot harder for them to eat my vegetables.

If you would like to send pictures of vermin (bunnies) to friends and family, then come visit my store at L Bowman Studios.  I have several styles of note cards to fit your correspondence needs. Mixed media sketch of a bunny

  1. I once planted carrots. The bunnies ate them to the ground. Le Sigh. They now sit in my front yard and eat the grass and clover and Maverick barks fiercely but they know he can’t get through the door so they taunt him. I’m not sure I like bunnies

  2. Oh, my, so sorry to hear about your bunny problem! 😦
    But, you did make me laugh! 😀

    One place we lived we had a bunny problem, but once we put a fence around the garden, it helped.

    We get some little bunnies in our front yard now and we have a few plants they like to nibble on. But they are such little bunnies they can only “trim” the bottom branches, so that is okay with me.

    When Coop was young, he always wanted to chase the bunnies, but we never let him off his leash to do so. Now, in his well-seasoned age, he doesn’t even seem to care about them.

    (((HUGS))) 🙂
    PS…Love your title!
