Last fall we planted tulip bulbs for the first time and eagerly awaited the arrival of spring, and with it a colorful change of seasons. Unfortunately, we did have some issues with rabbits. Our homemade, non-toxic egg and water repellent, which reportedly does real well at keeping deer at bay, did not repel all of the rabbits. So we put up a makeshift fence around the tulip bed and haven't had any further rabbit attacks.
My younger son says "Cheese" while standing next to the tulip bush.
And while not as vibrant a color, the green tomato plants are a sure sign of spring. We moved our plants from the house to the covered beds last weekend. Last summer was the first time I enjoyed tomatoes grown from seeds that I planted. This year we planted several roma tomatoes and grape tomatoes.
