Rabbit Snacks in the Garden

Standard

As spring turns into summer, my garden is beginning to yield small crops of rabbit snacks. At least that’s what he likes to think.

The raspberry bush in the front yard is starting to produce it’s first batch of berries. Planting this bush was an experiment and I’m thrilled that it’s actually still alive with the added surprise of yummy treats.

The rabbit was a little impatient for the first berry to ripen.

So close, yet so far!

Then, I made him wait a little longer . . .

Yes, its as tasty as it looks.

The pinto bean bushes had a major growth spurt and are producing a number of pods. Here they are on the vine . . .

. . . and here’s the first harvest:

Over in the zucchini patch, two were ripe for the picking. More are on the way and I suspect our friends we’ll be getting some free zucchini again this year – providing I can distract the rabbit.

Big zucchini for a small rabbit!

The plum tree we planted earlier this spring is barely a stick in the ground, but he’s intent on making plums! A baby plum is holding onto to one of the branches:

One little plum holds on for dear life!

Even the bees are getting a yummy snack. The wildflowers are still blooming like crazy, giving the birds and bees a feast!

Buzz, buzz! The bees are here!
