For the last several years, I've felt pretty fortunate in that the
rabbits that I occasionally see in the lawn have never caused me
any garden trouble. The Universe caught up with me.
I went out to the garden after work yesterday and saw less green
than I expected. Turns out they ate most or all of the broccoli
and cauliflower. (I'll hope for regrowth.) Uprooted all 4 of my
tomatillos, with only one being intact. Ate and/or uprooted several
of my bell pepper plants. I'd thought I over-planted those, but
probably not anymore.
After I got inside I realized that I didn't know how the celery
was. I think that's because it is completely gone. Will check
They didn't get to the tomatoes or pole beans, but I don't know
whether that should have a "yet" added.
I'll be mixing up some deer repelant when I get home, but I won't
want to be spraying that when the edible parts start growing.
I *think* they can only get through the fence at the "gates," where
they can get under. So maybe some 1x8s at the bottom will fix that.
My neighborhood needs more hawks.
