Fallen tree from Hurricane Irene
Here in coastal Connecticut, Hurricane Irene wreaked a fair amount of havoc, damaging trees and property, causing flooding, and leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power (including us).
We found our apple trees at 45 degree angles.
We had staked everything down on our raised beds and moved most of our potted plants to the basement.
But through all that, Coco and Cosette were happily oblivious to the storm. (Apparently bunnies aren’t that bothered when they don’t have lights or internet access.) Their veggies stayed cold enough in the fridge and there were still cardboard castles to renovate.
Here they are today, two days after the storm, still happily oblivious.
Yesterday, while we were still without power, we spent a very pleasant, sunny day cleaning up the yard and gardens. It was the perfect opportunity to plant some fall crops as well! We planted bok choy, romaine lettuce, and spinach.
We staked our apple trees so they are now growing upright again.
We cleaned up our gardens, brought the potted plants back out, and planted new fall crops.
For those of you also affected by the hurricane, how are you and your bunnies faring now?
