Garden journal entry


October 29, 2006. Winter is approaching, and with it our resident rabbits' tendency to gnaw down young shrubs and trees to mere nubs. While the attacked plants usually survive, they are set back quite a bit by this merciless treatment, so we try to take protective measures. This year, we have quite a number of newly planted woody specimens, planted along our new pond. So I'm taking advantage of some leftover coated chickenwire from a fencing project to create cage cylinders, which we stake down over plants to protect. The one in the picture is a small-leaved Japanese maple - a slow grower, so any rabbit damage causes quite a setback.
