Anyway, in certain garden beds the local rabbits seem to come in and do lots of damage to certain crops. I don't know that I'll get much broccoli or kohlrabi from that bed as the bunnies are doing them in. Why couldn't they like turnips better?
So, does anyone know of plants that will tend to turn the bunnies aside? I hate spending money on something to scatter around the garden when I'll only have to do it again after the next rain! I've used onions and garlic in the past to get squirrels to quit digging up potted plants but it doesn't seem to stop the bunnies from eating the broccoli leaves and pulling up entire kohlrabi plants.
Don't sweat petty things, or pet sweaty things. But cuddle this tiny ad:
