Soon after the gardening season got under way in the spring, I was watering the potatoes when I heard a very loud, hysterical squeal! What the………..I had my guesses… so I got a long stick and started poking around in the straw. Sure enough…bunny nest! Well, I worried over the bunnies for several days, kept poking open the nest and half hoping it would cause the mother to move them away to a safer place. I lay awake at night thinking of this year’s garden philosophy, working WITH nature, not against it. And then I would dream about what wonderful compost bunnies might turn into…circle of life and all that! Finally I decided to just deal with it and let them alone. I had visions of the whole family setting up their dining room in our garden, but one day I picked a couple of the little guys up and held them, and they jumped out of my hand and ran away. The others followed, and I didn’t see them again! Now the deer…..umm, that’s another story!

We have a rabbit nest in our backyard that tends to get used over and over and over through the years. 🙂
