Summer Surprise

It’s been three years since the dismal Tomato Project. The plant didn’t produce a lot of fruit and the experience dampened my enthusiasm for growing fruits and vegetables. The next summer I planted a cucumber plant that bore one cuke. The passage of time helps and I eventually got over my deep emotional wounds.

“Maybe I’ll try growing cherry tomatoes this summer…” was my thought until I decided to stick with what works. The two basil plants are doing very well this year. The rosemary is also growing but the oregano seems to be struggling. The empty pot on the patio with the tomato cage still bothered me and I kept thinking about planting something else. I had noticed the clump of dead grass in the pot and didn’t give it a second thought until this morning.

It moved. Maybe it was my imagination.

It moved again. So I watered it to see what would emerge. When the head popped out I thought it was a snake. When the tiny creature crawled completely out from under the grass I was surprised to see a baby bunny.  The tiny bunny butt is at the top of the pot.

I obviously cannot plant anything in that pot.

I’m growing bunnies instead.
