Blasted Baby Bunnies!
Take a look at my carefully caged tomato plant. If you do not recognize a tomato plant stripped of its leaves, the branched stalk in the foreground is the tomato plant. I used to like baby bunnies. They are so soft,so furry, so adorable ,so cute. Let me tell you cute wears off! My poor tomato plants have had a tough year as it is with frosts, rain with no sun, and now baby bunnies. The evidence is irrefutable. Baby bunny berries don't lie. Plus I have seen the bunnies shoot through the wire cages like they did not exist. Never thought a 2in. by 4in. hole would be no barrier for rabbits.
Those blasted baby bunnies are stripping leaves from my scented geraniums to make their little nests which makes them even less cute . Most rabbits settle for nests made from grass, but not these little bunnies. Rose and peppermint scented leaves seem to be necessary to make them happy.
Time is on my side I guess. Soon these baby bunnies will be too big to fit through the cage wire, but I can see myself now waiting in line at the farmers' market to buy a decent tomato.
