A day late and a dollar short


Or in the case of my hollyhocks, six weeks late and a few feet shorter than average!
As soon as they outgrew their taste for the leaves, the hollyhocks started growing again. But they had no chance to reach full height; not this late in the summer.

Apparently, in my yard, the rabbits were distracted by cilantro and dill AND TOMATOES?! (Every morning there was a new single tomato with bit open with little teethy marks all over it. ?!)

Anyhow, I am harvesting hollyhock seeds this week and sending them to a bunch of my blogging friends. If you're in need of more seeds, let me know. I can send a few rabbits if you'd like, as well.

Oh no! They're pretty now, though.

Something stole our cantaloupe all summer.

Suddenly this week our carrots, which were just about ready to be harvested, all disappered.

I'd love to blame the rabbits, but I think it was something that came from underneath the ground, as there is no sign of how the rabbits could have gotten in the fenced area, and the ground around the carrots is all dug up.

Those are Lovely!!!! :)

Rabbits have gotten our garden every year for the last 4 years (they even ate the habinaro plants!) I've not found a solution yet...yes..I've tried the 'ridiculous' ones too!

Our home looks like Teletubbie land....and even the dog has made 'friends' with the furry critters!

hopeless...just hopeless! :P
