Fenton Friday: Those Rascally Rabbits

'Kentucky Wonder' Green Beans seedlings
The rains have all dried up and a heat wave has set in. The Cucumber seedlings and Tomatoes are growing by leaps and bounds. I started Zinnia seeds and they are already up, but the Edamame has yet to make an appearance. I will give that another week.

I caught not one, but two, baby rabbits in my plot at the same time this week. This means war! Last year, the rabbits ate my Green Bean seedlings down to the nub each time they emerged. After trying 3 times, I gave up. This season I am taking no chances. I surrounded the green beans with some wire mesh and am hoping it is enough to get the beans started.

How is your vegetable garden growing this week?

About Fenton Friday: Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 7th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
