After an early morning bout of running around the habaneros and
zucchini in my bathrobe chasing two wabbits out of my gawden, I went
first thing to Ace Hardware and bought 3 50-foot rolls of 2-foot high
chickenwire to wrap around the perimeter of the fence they can squeeze
through (despite my bubblewrap borders).
Yes, Mary Ellen, they’re cute (there’s a mama and babies) but enough’s enough. I grow things for people to eat. I’m not a ‘gentleman farmer’ but a mere step below a real overalls and permanently dirty fingernails farmer. Also, I let this family live under my shop through the winter and spring but I didn’t expect to have to feed them as well.
Also, the poison ivy that keeps me watchful as I weed (it’s everywhere!) may have met its match with Roundup.
