I say "Gardening Woes" because that is the state of our garden this year. This is all I was able to pick this week.
Just these two mini baskets of vegetables and tomatoes.
It seems with the cold spring and late summer that our garden is rather scrawny.
Now you animal lovers out there, don't get mad at me for what I am about to say, but I wish I had some way of getting rid of the wild bunny that has taken up residence in our yard. We live in the city, we have a block wall around our property...it is California after all. But, this bunny decided that our yard has the best veges in town so he is eating the green beans faster than they can grow. I usually pick a gallon bag of beans every two or three days in June and July...this summer I've only picked one! My daughter-in-law did say they picked a lot while we were on vacation. And, the bunny likes to take a bite of the tomatoes, a few at a time, before he decided which ones to devour each evening.
On a bright note, the bunny does not like cucumbers or eggplant, so we have plenty and I planted enough tomatoes for the both of us to enjoy. But still, when you put so much love and hard work into a garden, let alone the money for the proper soil, I wish that darn bunny would just go somewhere else.
We need a good coyote run in Yorba Linda. A few years ago we had one in the backyard...where is he when I need him?
I did have a yummy breakfast this week of sauteed vegetables and scrambled eggs.
I also had a delicious tomato salad for lunch.
We've tried traps, but I think next year we'll have to figure out a different way to protect the garden. Any ideas out there are greatly appreciated.Thanks for stopping by,
