Here is yet another reason as to why I would never make a good farmer. I'd allow the wildlife to eat up my crops (with the exception of squirrels, I strongly dislike squirrels). While looking over our vegetable garden this morning, my wife and daughter discovered a nest of newborn bunnies. The mother made her nest right next to the carrots. I know, what a cliche! I don't want to name them, but if I had to I would, of course, go with Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, etc. Gosh they are cute, and gosh they will destroy our garden, but I can't help admire Mother Nature's tenacity for newborns. Truth be told, I'll be pleased if just one of these little guys makes it to a full grown rabbit. We have a couple of red-tailed hawks, stray cats, probably a black snake or two living in and around our neighborhood. An even greater predator is our three-year old daughter, Olive. She desperately wants to hold the bunnies, and I can't blame her! We have explained to her that she can't touch the bunnies, hold the bunnies, bring the bunnies inside, or drive them around in her Barbie car. Otherwise, the bunnies will die! (That last sentence is my line to Olive.) Good luck to Olive and the bunnies.
So, here's to hoping these little guys make it over the next several weeks. Here's to hoping that they won't eat all of our carrots. Kudos to you, Momma Rabbit for finding the perfect place to rear your young!
