Brer Rabbit decided gardening was too much hard work. So he went back to his old ways of eating from everybody else’s garden. Earlier, he made a tour through the community to see what everybody had been planting that summer and his eye was caught by Brer Fox’s peanut patch. Soon as the peanuts were ready, Brer Rabbit decided to make his acquaintance with them. Every night he ate his fill and even started bringing his family. Brer Fox had a good idea who was eating his peanuts, but he couldn’t catch him. He inspected his fence and finally found a small hole on the north side. He tied a rope with a loop knot and put it inside the hole. If anybody stepped in it, the rope would grab his leg and hoist him up in the air. That night Brer Rabbit came down to the peanut patch. He climbed through the hole and WHOOSH! Next thing he knew, he was hanging in the air upside down. There wasn’t a thing he could do, so he made himself comfortable to catch a little sleep!
