Somewhere i read rabbits can stretch in their hind legs to reach upward for more tender parts. I just lost all new growt wnd flowers from 2 new sweet cheeries that are only waist high, all low growth and flowers from 3 tart cherries, some leaves from the persimmon saplings.

The plums each have their own fence, and dwarf apples have their own fence. Its getting to be a bit much.

They are even eating onion leaves.

Rabbits have been eating a lot of flowers and plants this week here. Every year they eat hostas. And a few flowering plants.

Lol Daniel. Would squirrels do something like that? It's obviously been bitten but if it's rabbits I'm going to need a cannon to control them that size.

I think cutworms work lower.
I was very discouraged the week by deer damage. Damn giant rodents.
maybe you have giant rabbits?

Does anyone know if it's to early for cut worms? Something cut a shrub back so badly l thought my g daughters had been at it with pruning shears. Whatever it was cut off stems as thick as pencils and about waste high. That rules out rabbits. It's not deer because it's cut crooked. Rabbits have been eating hostas so I know what that looks like.

Thanks, Daniel. My linden is just now budding leaves. It'll be another month before I have blossoms and bees.

Randall have fun drive careful. Eat some of the local cuisine.

Today my bee shipment came. I just got them settled in. This year I hope they have some good linden blossons and a few on the sourwood I pkanted ladt fall. If they just survive I will be happy.

I'll be taking a "retiree's vacation" starting the 25th of April. I'm going to Utah- the Moab and Arches N.P area to do a Wilderness Volunteer service (trail work) trip for a week. When I return, the garden will have sprouted, hopefully!

Randy, Oh, I don't think the honeysuckle I have is different than your invasive kind. I just keep it very closely trimmed to get out all the dead stuff from the previous years, and tied up so they top my fence. It is a time intensive task but one that I enjoy. 

Today, I started on the south raised bed with its grossly overgrown plants that had no attention last year. I dodged rain showers and was able to do about half. I came inside to a lovely dinner Cary prepared, sauerkraut and sausages with toasted buns with chipotle sprinkled on.

I live in paradise.

That is so cool, Joan! I never thought of doing a generational garden. Around here, honeysuckle is considered an invasive. Perhaps it's a different species.
