Dahlia

So sorry Dawg! i had the same problem with my dahlia. It did not sprout as it usually does in spring, but when I dug it up I discovered that all the shoots had been eaten down!

I see wabbit stew in your future, Dawg! Just hope the recipe doesn't include beans.

Petty Vents

Had Beagle been on guard, this would not have happened! The baby bunnies are so cute, I don't think I could stew them...

Voracious little twerps. DH is highly suspicious of the finches he saw, he thinks they might have had some part in the decimation of the bean plants.

Oh no, Dawg....what a sad thing to come home to! I'm sure you're a favorite among the bunnies, they're probably all talking about what a nice feast you provide.

I don't understand it, Cheryl. The little vegetable garden is totally fenced in with parts from an old dog kennel. I used to plant my beans out in the open, and the deer and ground squirrels would munch them down, so I'd replant. But I've not seen the total devastation like I did today!

Dawg, it looks like human harvest to me, didn't you say you had a nasty neighbor?

Yes, we have one evil neighbor, but this is definitely non-human.

The neighbor that took care of the plants while we were gone said he watered the veggies, came back the next day, and the beans were gone!

Why does that mean the nasty neighbor didn't do it?
