Keeping Score

June 28th, 2010 at 06:59 pm

I had to do it. Almost forced. I broke down and bought some fresh green beans at the grocery. They weren't on sale even. Yikes!

You see, my husband planted green beans, but the bunny ate them to the ground. They came back and he did it again. And again. So, bunny 3, hubby 0.
However, a couple of weeks ago we bought poles and some fence wire and so far the game is bunny 3, hubby 1.

Except the beans are delayed from being chomped so many times. Almost like a Pac Man game. And it doesn’t seem like summer without fresh beans.

So, I succumbed to temptation and bought the beans. They smell good as they cook on the stove.
Maybe the score will be different: bunny 3, hubby 1 and wife 1. At least until the other green beans come up! Dumb bunny!

    Haha, nice score-keeping.

    Is it wrong for me to point out that bunnies are a good source of protein?

    Ha Ha, BA. I am having the same problem with a bunny. I just don't think I could have it for dinner. He/she keeps wanting to eat my beans also, so I sprinkled some chili powder on them. He/she has left them alone for now.

    Ah, so familiar. I could've written this exact blog entry Smile However yesterday, I was able to add a single, cherished, yard long bean to my omelet. Here's hoping your own will be bustin' out with beans pronto!

    Don't get me started on bunnies!! Grrrrrrrrr.... I've never had a problem before and all I wanted to do was plant morning glories like I do every year. They were a few inches high and all of a sudden they were GONE. A couple of the originals popped back up - a few inches now. Round two are in a planter and will be placed out when they are tall enough to climb. I tossed a bunch of various seeds in my side garden and those are all gone too. I saw one of the little offenders IN the garden one morning... no bigger than my cat's head. Little tiny thing. Lucky for him I didn't catch him... I tried! Big Grin
