    Well... I thought I would be safer with my squash, green beans, tomatoes and sunflowers in containers on the deck...but nooooo. Woke up this morning to find a rabbit sitting IN the pot with the beans, happily munching away. Poor bean is pretty ruined. Time to move the plants to the upper deck and possible chicken wire the stairs so that the buggars can't get to them. Any other suggestions for warding off the evil wild rabbit? Ugh.

    My neighbors thought I would be cute to release some rabbits and they ate everything we planted! I had one chew its way into the chicken run repeatedly until I fixed the problem with a shotgun

    Rabbits and deer always seem to be a pain try keeping wind chimes or shiny objects on the deck. That might discourage them from snacking on your garden!
