A few weeks ago our neighbor tried to talk the farmer into doing something about the rabbits.
We were hoping, lily-livered crew that we are, that the farmer would just make them disappear.
They were eating his wheat, after all.
But, I guess they didn’t eat much.
Last week our neighbor pointed out an empty field that I could just glimpse through the trees.
A few days earlier it had been a cornfield, filled with new growth.
I guess bunnies like corn better than they do wheat.
Now, I don’t want to imply that they ate his entire cornfield….. but they did eat rather a lot of it.
So much, in fact, that the next day the farmer and the farmer’s many friends we’re all over the area armed with guns and shovels.
I guess enough is enough.
We told him….
If he would have listened he wouldn’t have been spending today replanting his cornfield, now would he?
Lest you think that solved the bunnie problem, it didn’t. But when we take our evening walk we now see 3 or 4 rabbits in the field. Two weeks ago we saw 20 or 25.
Not perfect, but definitely an improvement.
Now that you know all about smoking – how about some lovely smoked cod?
In case you don’t know all about smoking – instructions repeated.
