First, a little introduction. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that a patch of straw had been moved away from the dirt in one of my tomato beds. OK. No biggie. Something was scratching around in there. A bird? A Rat? Whatever. No damage in sight. Event forgotten. I moved the straw back and went on with my life. Fast forward to the last couple of days. I kept hearing little rustling sounds in the area of that bed. I couldn’t really pinpoint the sound. Was it under the weedcloth pathways? In the grass outside the garden? In the garden bed itself? At one point, I could have sworn it was in the straw between my tomato plants but I couldn’t really see anything. I thought maybe it was just settling? Or a small snake? Or a large bug? Who knows.
And then today. I think these speak for themselves.
I have nothing to say.
I got some better shots of the pea weevils (click to see enlargement for better detail) before I ran into my friends, above. They were on my tomatillo plant, which is right next to the peas. I think they’re confused because the peas are gone.
OK, that’s it for now. Wow. Gardening. Full of surprises. There were a total of five bunnies, btw.
*please note, no bunnies were harmed in the making of this post. As I mentioned in my video… I put them in the bushes outside my garden so that mom could have them back. Shoulda offed ’em, but I’m lame and so they live on to make more bunnies and eat more of my garden.
