Tomato Seedling

Tomato Seedling

This is the start of my "Garden Journal." I try my best to keep my Garden Tracker up-to-date, but, I'll admit that life sometimes gets in the way and sitting down to tally up the details of things sometimes just doesn't seem all that appealing. But, a journal may be more my speed and maybe it will force me to observe and reflect a bit more.

I put all of my seedlings and seeds in the garden last weekend. I planted a variety of things - even recorded a video for it to get things started. Unfortunately, I went out there tonight to check things out and found a single deep hole in several of my pots. One of my eggplant plants is even gone. Grrrr....so frustrating. Not sure what this is. Perhaps the rabbit I caught out back when I was leaving for work? Time to do some research...or get some video surveillance. See the pictures below. What did this? What would not only dive in but steal my poor little eggplant? 

Eggplant was stolen!
