As our veggie patch came to an end, we reflected on how our little patch of turfed garden had become something so much more!
Our vegetable patch had inspired us to get more wildlife to our garden and we began to plan a nature garden…we bought Orlaith and Emelie a rabbit each and the hutch looks great next to the raised bed! Poppy also likes to hop in and out when she comes out for a run, which is so cute!!!
We did get a shock however, when she delivered 4 babies last week
They haven’t yet left the nest, but you can just see a nose poking out!
We were equally thrilled, after a month’s supply of wild rocket, to pull these little beauties from our veggie patch! What was even better, was the proud look on Orlaith’s face as she clutched her carrots! She has been in charge of these: she planted them, watered them and helped pull them too!!!
…next year, we plan on our garden being bigger and better! Once the builders extend our garden, we are hoping for more raised beds, some little green houses and a garden shed!!! hopefully , this will be the last of the bunny babies though!!!
