Tons of rabbits around here this year. They sure do love beans. Anyways, about a month ago I was in the back yard and saw a Red-tail sitting in the lawn down the hill a little ways. He just sat there and sat there. Then with a bit of struggle he took off clutching a bunny, gained altitude and away he went.Local Drama Club
This morning, a bunny munched on the grass a few feet from my porch. I spoke nonsense to it. With surprising suddenness, it scooted about 12 inches closer, then froze.
Nearly simultaneous with that, a Sharp Shinned Hawk emerged from the left (speeding up the grassy driveway), zoomed into my view a couple of yards from my face, and past the bunny, missing it by that same 12 inches. Clever bunny! [Pretend to be an oblivious, sitting duck, until the last second.]
A Sharp Shinned Hawk is a medium-size hawk, when viewed perched on a branch. But when it gets up close, it takes on more of a serving platter (roasted please) size.
In the past, I've asked this same hawk (or maybe its partner) to concentrate on the rodents, and go easy on the lagomorphs. It doesn't listen.
Put that on your list of things for me to change. Jessica told me when I got the seed that I probably wouldn't be very impressed by it. She was right. Very small plants with a very low yield. But the flowers were white. It doesn't produce like Samsun (aka Black Sea Samsun) or like Samsun Maden. I don't think I ever smoked any of the White Flower. Those leaves in the pict are probably still hanging in my barn.I suggest should be renamed, "White Flower Cusco," for clarity.
2013? I barely remember Tuesday. When I grew Samsun Maden before I had very few plants and got very little seed that year. Not enough to list it. This year is looking much better. I have 40 nice looking plants and am happy to see them start blooming already. For me, this is early.Northwood Seeds does not list Samsun-Maden. If you recall, as I'm sure you must, my 2013 grow log, I did grow Samsun-Maden.
