Re: How to keep rabbits out of garden?

Haha!

I'll let the guys pee outside, they do anyhow. I'll also try the blood meal. That's for the catfishing right? I may be thinking of a diff product. I'll also be standing by with the 22. I think it's the only gun we have I can shoot with my neck and back. I told DH this morning we will be haveing rabit often, weather he likes it or not, lol.

Yea, I bet we will have all the same pests!!

Great info, thanks op for posting this question!

I would set a trap and then have some rabbit stew. Super tasty and all natural.

Well, see, I have this problem in that I can't eat something after I've seen its face....I'd feel too sorry for it.

Thanks Katy, I'll have to try it! Mostly I'll be watching for dinner in the early am and at dusk I think, lol.

Re: How to keep rabbits out of garden?

We have a ton a rabbits..but they dont do any damage to my garden. Last year a friend of mine had rabbits in her garden she said they only bothered the lettuce and the weeds. She said she happily sacraficed the lettuce to them since they were doing a nice job weeding! LOL
Lasst year my dear neighbors petunias kept them all occupied. The poor man spent $100 on petunias planted his whole front walk and in front of house thick with them....darn rabbits ate every single one. Everytime we looked over his way...he was standing there gaurding them with the broom...poor manhad to sleep sometime though. He finaly came over and hubby offered him the 22'...he left with the bb gun. He accidently kiled one trying to scare it off and felt terrible. Lol...i think he was relieved when thelast petunia was eaten and he could give up the fight.
So plant a bed of petunias an i'llbet they leave your garden alone!

Plant marigolds around your garden - they hate them and will not step (or hop!) near them
