CROOK

Someone's been eating my....

Someone's been eating my...

carrot tops!

Hmmm...let's see, who could it be?

Was it you?

"No mama, but I did pick the beets too early!"

Was it you?

"No, but I ate the rest of the raw chocolate pudding when no one was looking"

Was it you?

I'm thinking not.

Ah Ha!

You!

and you!
(Yes, our bunnies Pepper and Black As Night look exactly alike!)

Guess, the bunnies have figured out where the goods are.  It did take them a while to jump up into the planters. 
I'm thinking chicken wire around it?  But that's going to be hard for the kids and I to work around.
Ideas?

  2. If you have room in your planter....bunnies don't like the smell of marigolds. Maybe some cayenne on the leaves would help.

    I am having an APRON GIVEAWAY on my blog. I would love for you to enter. Terry

  3. What a charming post!! Love it! This warmed my heart and brought a smile to my face this morning! Last fall we surrendered our grapes to the birds, and this year the cherries look like someone's been snacking...sigh. Next year we may try some kind of fine netting like tulle...

  5. awww cute pics.

    my friend who rescued rabbits used to have a large metal fencing to put around the rabbits when they were in the yard. it is moveable. you could put it around the garden when you can't watch it.

  6. That is too cute! I chop the ends off my carrot tops for my guinea pigs every once in a while. I have that same problem as you, but with slugs! Ugh! Hmm..Can you put up a small fence around it? They sell them at Walmart. It looks like this : http://www.emmitsburg.net/gardens/articles/frederick/2007/Garden3.jpg except it's a miniture version.

  7. Either around the veges or around the rabbits are your only two options I fear. Our rabbits ate everything when I was a kid. But we didn't have marigolds, so maybe...

  8. HI all! Thanks for all the suggestions!!
    Terry - I never heard of the whole marigold thing. It makes sense though because F has a whole bunch in her flower garden and the bunnies don't hop up and eat the mint in there...
    Kristen - Yes, that would work if the bunnies were polite and only ate their carrots.

    I think we'll just keep them in their outside pen (like the one you're talking about Bitt) and let them roam when we're there to protect the produce. :)

  10. I know marigolds to work well. Before we made a garden fence (it is more difficult to work around ;) I would plant a perimeter of marigolds and the bunnys never ate in the garden.
