Another Rabbit in the Garden!

Bunny in garden

How did another bunny get into the garden?!

I’m beginning to think there may be a hole under the shed. It’s half in and half out of the garden. When we start planting I’ll put a little fencing around the base of the shed so if they do dig under, they still won’t get into the garden.

Good news is we got him out. First we opened the door which scared him under the shed, then I walked through knee high snow to the back of the garden to scare him towards the open door.  Worked like a charm! I don’t think he’ll be getting in there again!.


Snowy Easter Bunny

Snow Bunny

What a way to spend Easter weekend! More and more spring snow! At least we had a visit from the Easter bunny. He found an escape from the snow in the door of the ancient root cellar that was installed on our property long ago.

Since recovering from the flu there has not been a decent day to work on the coop and the chicks are coming in a about a week! And I thought a month was plenty of time to get prepared for them. Is this mother nature’s idea of a joke?!

A Prickly Prescription


In August, a tiny baby rabbit found a weak spot in the garden fence where it pulled away from the dirt due to erosion. He dug underneath the fence and built himself a home under the shed that is contained inside. It had been 2 weeks of enjoying the lettuce and tasting the bell peppers when he started to sniff around the carrots. We finally caught him at a moment when he was far enough away from his hole.  We blocked the opening and chased him out the main gate.  To fix this new issue permanently I dug up prickly pear cactus from the property and planted it all along the outside base of the fence and lined the inside with more bricks. Let’s see him try to dig under now!
