It's Just a Bitty Bunny

And so here is where I admit that flowers, gardens, cute wildlife and seeking healing in dirt don't interest me. I have friends who are not 'whole' until they can get out and be in dirt for the first time in the spring.

Whatever.

We inherited a garden that spits out asparagus and rhubarb automatically and tdx took care of it. Now because I have an inquiring 3 year old I was willing to weed and even till and plant some tomatos, peas and probably pumpkins. Fine.

Today we were weeding and came to an abrupt - and admittedly with a high pitched yelp - halt. For we found these:


In the garden... you know the one with the fence in order to keep bunnies OUT of the garden.
Anyway, I think they're fine. The boy thought they were cool. And now I don't have to garden this summer, right?

Sounds like a good excuse to me. I'm not much for gardening either. Exhibit A: the yard.

They are cute!

And I am so with you about the whole gardening thing.

They are precious.
And growing your own vegetables? Definitely a 5 year old thing. Get some marigolds in a plastic cup, and Let it go.

Cute bunnies!!!

I'm not a gardening person either. Too many bugs and crawly things. *shudders* I prefer to support the local farmer's market.

Diane said...

boy, they're cute.

Kathryn said...

Grow mustard and cress on the window cill for the Boy and enjoy the cuties hopping about the garden :-)

Mary Beth said...

You can grow some stuff FOR them to eat. But not much... :)

BUNNIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fabulous. Reminds me of my own bunny story...

Reformed Catholic said...

Well ... if you want fresh asparagus this year, pray that the bunnies are moved by their mom !!

Then fix the fence ;)

Oh, teh cuteness...

I have become a big fan of whatever will self-seed from year to year, like poppies. Also of whatever lovely botanical specimens blow in from my neighbours' yards (often, poppies).
But bunnies definitely mean, "specially good people live here," I'm sure.
Enjoy!

What Diane said.

Of course you don't! You're raising bunnies instead! (well, mama bunny is, anyway)
How precious!

Silent said...

Not to be a downer--but if they stay in your hard, watch out when lawn mowing. I've heard horror stories--though thankfully have none of my own.

Okay, now for the positive--I think the bunnies are precious and mean you shouldn't have to garden if you don't want to!

I am not about the dirt, so I think you are off the hook for gardening!

However, I did buy one of those grow-tomatoes-upside-down planter things that you apparently just fill up with dirt (and tomato plant, obv.) and then hang outside somewhere. Water and then eat more tomatoes than you know what to do with. No weeding, no bugs, no critters eating your tomatoes....they are supposed to be fabulous. I'll let you know how it goes in case you decide you want one next year. :-)

PS--my word verification is "erbvvy" which is obviously a sign that you should grow basil or something. :-)

Well, I am one of those fanatical gardeners who cannot wait until it's time to plant my garden and I have a love/hate relationship with bunnies (I love to hate them) because they have destroyed more than one of my beloved crops.

however I do have to say they are teh cute! Plant some marigolds around your fence when you get it fixed.
