Beans and Bunnies

A couple weeks ago I reported on bunnies in my bean patch, and a broken agreement I had with the cottontail population concerning staying away from my garden.

After a flood of requests to find out what happened, well okay, a trickle of questions, I report the following.

A truce with the bunnies has been negotiated, encouraged to be sure by the smell of bunny repellent that I liberally sprayed on the injured bean plants. The beans are recovering, slowly. The rabbits are keeping their distance. And life goes on. Now I am crossing my fingers for no frost until about Thanksgiving, as it will take that long for my struggling beans to regain enough strength to produce something.

THE OLD TIMER SAYS: Two times of day are special. Sunrise and sunset. Take time to notice one or both. It’s good for the soul.
