Good Problems?!?

So...Spring is here!  (Finally!)
   And the spring time rituals are underway.....one of the many is cleaning out the garden and enriching the soil.  It is a typical activity, no different than any other year, except this year I received a surprise.
   Some people like surprises, others do not.  I am one of the ones that like them but this time maybe not so much.
   You see, every year I plant a garden so that I can help feed my family.  Many produce items from the grocery store seem bland, like the tomatoes that the big corporations have to pick before they are ripe so that they can get them to the store shelves before they spoil.  Tomatoes grown in our garden that have been kissed by the sun are sooooo much better!   But I digress.....
  You see, year after year my garden is ransacked by rabbits.  They eat just as much of my garden as my family does.  Sometimes I even wonder if they get more than my family.  This spring I found a surprise in my garden.  A nest (is that the right word?) of baby rabbits, about 6 as far as I could tell. 
SURPRISE!
Hello cute little creatures, Goodbye bountiful harvest for my family! 
Oh well, life goes on....and I bet I won't get any complaints out of the bunnies when I tell them to eat their vegetables. LOL
Maybe my kids will follow their lead!
Happy Spring everyone!
