My garden has been besieged by rabbits. They are eating my onions, arugula, lettuce (of course), tomato leaves, dahlias, shamrocks, gerbera daisies, even some weeds. The photo above is a little baby bunny nibbling on spurge, a weed that came up between the nation and the garden border wall.
After using commercial products with a fragrance they don’t like, then putting out cayenne pepper on the plants, then doing both again each time it rained (almost every day lately), I finally began making a barrier around some plants with plastic forks stuck into the soil. I also began spreading little pieces of lettuce in the garden — lettuce that, otherwise, would have gone to the compost bin. If only those little guys weren’t so cute. Sigh.
