G*ddamned Bunnies

I am not going to garden any more until we can fix the bunnies.  And by "fix the bunnies", I do fully recognize that I have the capacity to make organic bunny stew. I bought some broccoli the other day to plant in the garden and before I could even get it in the ground, the bunnies ate it to the nub.  Then I bought some more and was able to actually get in in the ground and cover it with a "bunny repellant" cloth before the bunnies ate them.  

That's when I figuratively threw in my garden hoe and said that's it.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  I am tired of spending 5 to 10 hours a week in my garden just to provide some effing bunnies a free, all-you-can-eat buffet. So I'm done until we can get a bunny-proof fence around the garden.  I'm just not going to do it.

So there.

In other news, we're moving forward on both our house remodel and our rain garden.  In my cranky state after our return from California, I whined that I wanted to see progress at least on one of our major life goals this fall.  

But perhaps my main life goal right now really is the irradication of all bunnies near our house.  I truly hate me some damn bunnies.   I'm telling you that fantasies of bunny beatings are somewhat appealing right now.

Hi there, I found your blog by accident, surfing the web, and identify with your conundrum on sending your son to school early or waiting a year. I also have a son who sits on the cutoff date, with a late November birthday. We've opted to wait the extra year, mostly for the same reasons you are considering. I'm adding a link that we found useful in making our decision to wait, maybe it will be of some use to you too.
Good luck with your decision. :)

I sympathize with the bunnies, after an entire summer of deciding that a bird was snatching every last bit of goodness from the garden I have finally concluded it is in fact a bunny. I am thinking of a cutting garden next year instead. But more to the (not so much) point...I just saw my blog on your list! I ran upstairs to show my husband...he knows how much I have enjoyed your blog and the ones I have found through yours. Thanks!
