Yesterday I was called upstairs. Peering out the window, as V told me to do so, I noticed a rabbit couple. They were in the pathway between the Solanums and the cabbage beds. Apprehensive as I was I continued to watch. They weren't going into the beds to get what I'll dub as the "good stuff". They remained in the pathways eating various weeds. We are guessing clover. Perhaps it has a higher nutritional profile. Higher percentage of protein maybe? (Note most vegetables on average contain 20% plus of protein while human breast milk contains 6%) The rabbits eventually hopped themselves off to other urban pastures and that was that.
Roll forward. Today. I am out in the sun room aka Jane's chosen bedroom at her homestead. No not my sunroom. I have my own thanks. Amidst painting the bead board ceiling to finish it off. Bamboo floors, celery walls, white bead board ceiling, large floor to ceiling windows. Great area to zone out. Anyhow, I noticed a very large rabbit in the wheat. Watching it to see what it really was up to I freaked when coming to realize it was eating the wheat berries!!
Curses. Yes Folks. My experiment might be postponed. A walkthrough of the 150SF planted out shows a striking lack of any. Maybe, just maybe it is a plant that will attempt flowering again.... Similar to broccoli right? Maybe? Well, damn.
:D Enjoy yourselves out there fellow garden bloggers! We know that I am.
