gopher/rabbit art

Organic means our produce is SO GOOD that everything wants to eat it. That's what I try and tell myself when I encounter holes in the lettuce or little nibbles off the summer squashes.

But this...
...can be frustrating. Happy thoughts about sharing with the other living things on our land aren't what comes to mind first after pulling up one gnawed-on beet after another...
I mean, seriously, why not just go ahead and eat the whole thing (though these pre-chewed beets did end up in a delicious dip).


  1. Haha, I was thinking the same thing the other day when I was pulling beets. It's frustrating and humorous at the same time, the way the animals FEAST when they eat in our field. Like kings and queens without regard for control or care for finishing what they start - a little nibble of this, a bite of that...
    and we're the poor gleaners of what they leave behind. An upside-down kingdom, if you will ;)

  2. think - "Ishmael." or maybe that's just me.
