The Problem with Thumper

It’s early summer.  The garden has been planted.  The young “bean sprouts” and “pea sprouts” are pushing up out of the fertile soil.  In a few short weeks we will have fresh pea pods to pop.  Our organic garden launched; free of pesticides.  And then along comes “thumper”.  Such a cute little bunny rabbit.  And those little sprouts ever so tasty.  One morning, we see the rabbits jumping about and a few dozen bean and pea seedlings climbing the walls to reach the sun.  And then, they are ALL GONE.  The culprit is Thumper (at left, no my photo).  So tasty, so succulent.  So gone.  And now, we are set back several weeks, perhaps, never to recover.  In the virtual world, I would likely accellerate the growth by buying “virtual currency”.  But here, I am stuck with the realities of fast approaching summer.  New seeds went into the ground; will it be a repeat.  Am I feeding the wildlife.  Welcome to life in suburbia.
