Oh, Those Pesky Wabbits!
I mentioned to a fellow garden blogger that I didn't have any problems with rabbits. Well no such luck now!
I think I've been cursed from reading blogs from those of you that have rabbit problems! Ok just kidding, I will cast no blame.
Yesterday evening I was taking a walk around my garden and I noticed that one of my containers on the barn porch looked bare. Sure enough the sweet potato vine leaves are gone! I have, or should I say, had the vine planted with an elephant ear bulb in a container. This container is 24" tall. The pesky rabbit had to stand on his hind legs to get to it! What's the deal! Is there a shortage of plants to munch on around the house NO! I have a field behind my house full of munchies!
Is there a reproductive explosion going on? There are twice as many dandelions, moles and now rabbits! I hope this isn't a sign of more pests to come this gardening season.
