Chris said he saw a rabbit in my garden this morning!!! Anyone have idea of how to keep him away from my vegies?

And we might not be leaving for the summer either. Not sure yet... guess if we go he can eat all he wants!

I think there is some solution you can spray around your plants that the critters won't like (organic).

Actually, I just looked it up. Here is a solution one person suggested:
2 raw egges
1 qut water
1 tsp cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce
squirt dish soap

Mix in spray bottle.

Somebody else said put old items like a couple of old shirts or an old pair of shoes around your garden, or human hair clippings, a lot of people actually seem to recommend hair clippings. I also read spreading some kitty litter or garlic powder.

Thanks! I supposed you would have to spray after every rain too?

My little weenie dog keeps a good watch during the day but the bunny has free rein during the night. No damage that I can see so far though!

Thats good that he hasn't eaten anything. It seems that rabbits can do a lot of damage though. I might try the hair thing because you are right, you would probably have to spray after every rain. It sounds like it rains quite often up there.
