Another hole in my vegetable garden! Unlike the hole I found last week, this one shows definite signs that someone or something was setting up for the long haul! To the left you can see the nesting material I removed. I half expected to see little tiny pieces of rustic furniture and a little welcome mat in there. To the right, some sweet smelling thyme. I'm sure that made it a nice place to be!
This hole is in a smaller 4' x 4' raised bed in the center of the vegetable garden, where I have a small apple tree.
What did I do when I discovered this hole? I cleaned it all out, trimmed back the thyme around it, filled it in, and generally made it quite obvious to Mrs. Rabbit or whomever that they are not welcome here. Not welcome here!
No, she was not home when I cleaned this all up! Don't get on me about the 'poor bunnies, where will they go', 'they were there first', etc., etc. They are rich, fat bunnies feasting on my vegetable garden. If they would just go another block over there is a great big pasture with horses and everything. I'm sure over there along the fence row, they could do quite well!
