Little Bunny Foo Foo

Thursday night, Mr. Polka Spot came to the bathroom to tell me "I don't want you to freak out, but there is a rabbit in the house!" I start asking questions. Mr Spot had walked out to his car and left the door open. He looked up and something was hopping into the house.

We searched and searched to no avail. After giving up we went on to bed, leaving the door open so the little creature could hop outside.

At 1:55 I hear little thumper in my bathroom. I start tapping Mr. Polka Spot on the leg, until he wakes. We go to investigate.

When we look into the tub, there we find....


Mr Polka Spot saves lite little fellow

Awe how sweet!!!!We talk to him and pet him for a few minutes, and he's perfectly content to be held. So what do we do with him until we can move the cage the next afternoon?



Put him in the Polka Spot Kids' gallon sized pickle jar!


So what next? I kept him in the jar, or the bathtub for most of the next day. I did take him out to pet and hold while watching tv for about an hour. Mr. Spot came home with a lovely cage, we put him in it then went to deliver Polka Spot Son6 to his mother. When we made it home he had escaped!!!

Now we are shopping for another bunny. We are thinking of maybe a breeding pair next time.

The Planting has Started


The polka spot kids helped on Good Friday. I think it was early to start but Mr. Polka Spot thinks we will be ok. Worst case scenario we can replant some things.

From plants we started roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onions, bellpeppers, chyenne pepper, jalepeno peppers, some other peppers that I don't remember.

From seeds we started pink eyed purple hull peas, green lima beans, kale, spinach, salad mix, romaine, cantalope, watermelon and broccli.

Today the plan is to start the herbs, but I think that I will wait for a little while. We found some cool hanging pots for the Patio. Mr. Polka Spot hung them yesterday.

If you've missed it, I have a personal blog over at Sweet Southern Knits
I will try to move all of my gardening posts from there to here over the next few months. I have lots on my plate right now so I know it won't be in the next 3 weeks.
