Upon retuning from a week of vacation I find that my garden has been found by a baby rabbit. The cutest little bunny I have seen!
I watched through the window as he hopped around in my cold frame (which is now a hot frame) and he very nicely chose the weeds to nibble on. Grasses and pigweed. He avoided the melons and cucumbers and broccoli. He didn't eat the sunflower seedlings. He did eat the two baby soy bean seedlings still in plastic trays - oh well. Now this is definitely a failed crop. I thought it was better to get this cute photo than two bushes of edamame.
I've been watching the mother rabbit, who lives under the porch next door, for most of the fall and spring. I guess she's been busy. Its unusual for us to have rabbits here in the suburbs of Boston. Seems nice to see more wildlife, so I'm happy to share with the bunny today. I'll probably be annoyed with it later and may need to add chicken wire around my fences at home like my community plot. (Where is my dog!!?? Doesn't he have some responsibility to keep out the rabbits! He'd rather swim and sit in a boat. Not really a wild life chaser.)
