In the Garden: Sprouts and Critters

May 13th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Our seeds began to sprout within a week, and I’m not sure whether the Foodie Tot or I was more surprised. Now that we’ve moved in to the new house, we’re able to check on the garden daily. The boy is always so excited to go see how much things have grown.

We’ll have some thinning to do, as my seed planting assistant had a heavy hand in scattering the seeds.

Of more pressing concern, however, is putting up some chicken wire around the garden. Something has nibbled our first two ripening strawberries, and been pawing around in the beets and peas.

The prime suspect? A healthy looking rabbit we spotted hopping through the backyard one evening. Hopefully the chicken wire will solve that problem!

    I need to break out the chicken wire, too. If I can find a free moment!

    Your garden looks really cute. I saw some rabbitts hopping around my yard too, so I am thinking about putting up a fence. Happy Gardening!!!
