One of the things ….one of the many things, I bet….that put people off about this garden is my absolute refusal to kill creatures that visit my garden. My wife did say it was irresponsible not to put a mosquito dunk into the pool because of West Nile Virus, but other than that, I let living things alone.
I’m not especially fond of squirrels (my weapon of choice against them is a squirt gun), and have been trying to get the dog to come outside and help me chase rabbits away, but he really doesn’t feel like it. I’ve found the places where they tunnel under the back fence …..the rabbit fence….but every few days there’s another tunnel.
This morning I was taking some pictures and chased two adult rabbits back into the field, squirting them with the garden hose. But one stayed behind.
