Did you ever wonder what goes on in your garden when you aren’t looking? Who might be visiting?
I went out to the vegetable garden a little bit late this evening, just for a quick check in the last light of the day.
It’s important to check the garden every day. After all squash can grow to quadruple its size in one day or tomato hornworms can decide that your prize heirloom tomato plants are just the place to rest and eat, and eat, and eat.
Or as in the case of my garden, mysterious bunnies can show up amongst the beans and peppers.
And the spoons that you use to keep the bunnies out of the beans can grow to twice their size.
I either have such a green thumb that I can even get plastic spoons to grow or…
My garden has been invaded!Just who, oh who, could have visited my garden today to plant giant spoons and leave three ‘stuffed’ bunnies, which are the best kind of bunnies to have if you are going to have bunnies at all?
What forces have been at work out there?
This took some planning. Some scheming. Some nerve. Tomorrow in the first light of day, I’ll be inspecting the garden more closely, looking for footprints, checking for other ‘surprises’, and most certainly counting my squash!
