But now, the problem. While hoeing the row for the peas I uncovered a nest of baby bunnies- a mere 6 inches from where I wanted to plant my row. I actually almost hoed them. The nest was in a bunch of dried grass in a furrow. Thinking that it was just a bunch of dried grass, I was going to work it in. I took the top off and saw fur. OOPS! Inside were three tiny baby bunnies. The kids were fascinated. I didn't let them touch them and we used sticks to reposition the grass back on top of them. I hate having baby bunnies in my garden since they're going to become big bunnies and eat my peas but I also don't have the heart to just kill them- especially with the kids there. It could be that since the nest has been disturbed that mama bunny won't come back. We'll have to see what happens.
In house news- we sent a letter to the owners requesting financial assistance to fix the septic and bring the well up to code. For some reason, they want 5 days to make their decision. That has me worried. I'm really bad about turning things all around in my mind and ruminating on all the things that could go wrong, wondering why they need that much time, worrying about their motives, all that mental garbage. As a result, I haven't been sleeping well which makes everything more difficult during the day. I hope that being out in the garden today will help me sleep better tonight.
We will be spending Easter Sunday with my parents. We weren't able to go down last weekend for my Mom's birthday so I'll have to take her gift of seedlings down to her. I also want to check out her reported stash of canning jars that she isn't using any more.
