Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits

A few days after planting my herbs and greens, I walked out to my garden and found this.....

A rabbit had been to my newly planted salad bar and had all he could eat. He ate my parsley and cilantro down to the ground.


I sprayed some rabbit deterrent spray around my garden. I've heard that you can make your own rabbit deterrent spray with water, cayenne pepper and dishwashing liquid. I don't think this spray is made with peppers; the bottle says it is all organic. I don't want to know what's in it.

I came home to find that my neighbors had joined me in my quest to rid my garden of rabbits. They put this sign in my garden.

I am happy to report that either the rabbit spray or the Elmer Fudd sign have successfully rid my herbs and greens garden from rabbits.

Unfortunately, the rabbits decided to move to my big vegetable garden and eat all of my peas and beans.... a fence is now in place around that garden.

This garden is looking pretty good now. We've had a couple of great salads. Thanks Elmer.

The Elmer Fudd is so cute! Nice of you to share with the rabbits..but they almost wiped you out..maybe you should make rabbit stew! :)

Has that rabbit been back I do have a few traps or maybe the bebe-gun but your maybe right the fence is the way to go because they are likely to tell their buddies where the best salad is.Gma
