Hi Jerry,
Plant a sacrifice crop of lettuces and kale around the perimeter of the area
you wish to protect. The rabbits come to the edge, find their favorite food,
settle in to nibble, and leave the rest of your garden alone. This has worked
well for a friend of mine. Keeping dogs is another deterrent.

[nafex] rabbits!

Any suggestions for keeping rabbits out of my garden? After years of having
problems, they are cleaning me out. Our dog is an inside dog, so that is not
option. I put chicken wire around the whole garden tonight so we'll see if
helps. I do have a low wire of my electric fence, but they seem so slip
under it. Any suggestions? Jerry in southern Indiana
