Hi everyone! Ok, so i planted some crops, including cucurbits, corn, radishes, aurugula, they are all showing their cotyledons and the first leaf. And i can see plenty of wild hares around my crops. So far they donĀ“t seem to have eaten any of my plants but i fear they might when the plants grow more, specially the cucurbits flowers. Do you reckon i should take some control measures against the hares or there will be no major problems?

By the way im glad to be part of this great forum! Been reading a great many threads

Hi,Thomas...sorry your question didn't get an answer...I imagine by now you have found out which things the hares like? Here they love most beans, clovers, sweet potato vine and okre. Usually there are only a few around but one year they were everywhere...we were able to keep them out of our gardens with two foot chicken wire fences.
