So, this year we grew veggies for the first time! It’s now reached the stage where most are ready to dig up!
The carrots weren’t too successful; they were very thin and the rabbits got most of them! The squash never materialised and the broccoli was eaten by a huge colony of caterpillars…which we did enjoy Looking at as Orlaith had never seen one before!
Rocket was the big success and we had enough to share with family as well as eating it every weekend for the last month or so!
What really impressed me, was the wildlife the veggies brought to the garden! In particular, this little fella!
Gorgeous isn’t he?
This week also saw the arrival of a litter of kits from our rabbit, Poppy! Initially there were 4, but after the birth, 1 sadly didn’t make it. The other 3 are thriving, buried in the huge nest she has made and I will post photos as soon as they leave! Our other doe, Daisy, is also showing signs that she’s pregnant and has been moved indoors!
Our little garden has become quite the nature reserve! The girls are continuing to enjoy it!
