I love gardening partly because it plunges me into the world of nature, its checks and balances. I have been feeding our pet rabbits all sorts of things from our garden–weeds, shoots, leaves, apple branches, raspberry twigs, strawberry leaves and dandelions. Guess what they eat first. Yes, dandelions. That’s good too as it prevents our lawn becoming totally weed-infested. Nature’s checks and balances!
Just discovered too that my rabbits love Queen Anne’s Lace which is sprouting amid the grass of my lawn. I love nature’s checks and balances.
What is the best way of dealing with a garden neglected for a year? Tame a bed and then go on, or do a different bed every day. I am doing a little bit of both these things.
