    The rabbits are eating everything. They are eating things I have never had an issue with before. I have gone the Irish Spring route. The neighbors have used blood meal. They are having the same problem. 

    They have eaten rudbeckia, cosmos, cilantro, dill, daisies, beans, corn, morning glories, marigolds, sunflowers, butterfly weed, painter's palette and asters. Any other ideas? We have discussed stringing out bird-x netting. I crunched up egg shells to see if that helps at all. Probably not. Gives the neighbors something to talk about though. Compost doesn't hurt, either.


    This is bun. Tries to act all innocent but no... :angry:

    The neighbors have taken their new-to-them camper out on its maiden voyage, so it gave me an opportunity to weed that entire bed without complaint that I had to set foot on their property to do it. (The plants have gotten big, and my legs aren't that long to be able to step over everything.) 

    The items the buns have left alone...

    The colorful echinacea makes me think of the lovely @oftenreading , since she sent me some seeds a few years ago. The echinacea keeps going. :smile:
    Beautiful flowers. I think the bunny is adorable. But of course I don’t have a garden it is destroying. I hope you find a solution to that. I know you have been working hard on that garden.

    Yeah. It's a bummer to try to have a lovely organic lawn where we don't discriminate on residents, but we would like them not to eat everything. 

    But look at all of the echinacea ready to bloom!

    There's no doubt there. Bun is always eating. Always. It's not just one bun. It's like a quiverfull movement of buns living throughout the neighborhood. Sweet as they are, but they and their parentals are everywhere.

    They sure can can reproduce. My college roommate put up a poster in our bathroom that had a ton of bunnies on it and the caption said “don’t forget to take your pill” 🐰🐰🐰
  • @deadendp @MF117973 lol to both!

    Lettuce container and peanut butter jar to guard sunflowers. And look! It's weeded! (Ignore the driveway.)

    Berry season! 
    Lots of picking to do!

    The pickled peas are great this year, I've eaten a quart already, and I have 2 more in the fridge with another quart picked today and ready to pickle.  Pulled first zucchini today, too!  Getting to be that good time of year.

    Scallions and lettuce have been nice additions to our garden this year. Using those on an almost daily basis this summer.

    The nasturtium have started to bloom. Mom gave me seeds for Mother's Day. The second planting of sunflowers has been successful. They are getting big, so I had to readjust my tacky critter block. 

    The beans are actually leafing again and growing thanks to the water bottle guards.

    had to rip out the heirlooms...  Fungus got to them...

    Might plant some still.  Late season maters but I think it's worth it.

    If you lived closer, I have tomatoes coming up everywhere.  I'd share!
