It has to be
a Rabbit in the Vegetable Garden eating the very late
season Venture Beans. This is not an ordinary Rabbit.
It's a sick, mean creature engaged in some kind of
psychological warfare against the Gardener. It would be
OK if he wiped out the entire row as a part of his
evening routine. There'd be a period of mourning, a
moment of intense foot stamping, followed by an "Oh
well, not meant to be" and life would go on.
But not this
Rabbit. That would be far too decent and upright for this
Rabbit. Instead what he does is nibble off the leaves of
just a couple of plants, and I have to admit it's a very
neat nibbling, he doesn't waste anything, or do random
trampling or wallowing in the row. Then next morning,
another couple of Bean plants nibbled to within an inch of
their lives. He's not even supposed to be in the Vegetable
Garden for goodness sake. How he gets in, I've got no idea.
He's probably got a ladder.
