Good news – Bad news

The good news is the rabbit is not eating my tomatoes any more. The bad news is… he found my apples. I went out to check on him yesterday and found a half-eaten tomato. I wondered why he didn’t finish his tomato, until I saw him feasting on one of my apples. It’s a backyard buffet!  This is a dwarf tree so I only have about 20 apples on it right now, as opposed to hundreds of tomatoes still on the vine. Frankly, I’d rather he take the tomatoes since I’m a little tired of picking them every day. By the way, the new total today is 4,321 cherry tomatoes!

When I caught him with the apple, I tried to shoo him away, but he only stepped a few inches away from the apple and stood his ground, making sure I wasn’t going to take it. What would I do with a half-eaten apple? Wait a minute.. getting hit with an apple might knock him unconscious and then the owl could come down and take him away. This is my dream.

    Jenny, you must be really frustrated now with this rabbit. I would be. This is why I dislike squirrels and whatever else that is this destructive. I really, really hope he doesn’t eat all your apples off your dwarf tree. Bad rabbit!…

    I am still stuck on the tomatoes too!! All I have to say is this rabbit seems to be better behaved than the squirrel from last year. I say you live trap the rabbit with an apple and tomato and relocate the little bugger!!!

      There are actually three rabbits. I realized it tonight when I looked outside when it was almost dark and I saw three of them hanging around the tomato (which is right next to my apple tree!) Three against one… No fair!
