    ... at the stupid rabbits that just ate ALL of the tomato and pepper plants I grew from seed!!! Of course they didn't touch the ones I bought from the store. In all, about 10 pepper plants are gone and 6 tomatoes. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I hear ya, sister! Last year my banty cochin taught my standard chicks that the plants in the planter - my peppers - were yummy treats.

    ETA: Adn last week the standards decided that my emerging hostas needed a trim. They *were* up 6"... now are up just 3".

    You need coyote pee and some step-in fence posts and poultry netting. Fence in your garden with the posts and netting, and spray the urine around it.

    Should cut back on them a bit.

    coyote pee....I hope they don't come in this close to me but I know they have on a few occasions...they can stay across the field and over in the woods.

    would dog pee do the same?

    I'm thinking that a coyote or two would clear up the rabbit problem pretty well.

    ...so can my male dog.

    That's always nice to find chewed on baby bunnies scattered around the yard right before guests arrive for a children's birthday party.

    Then envision a mom running around with the pooper scooper hoping she got them all as to not leave children with horrible memories of cute lil baby bunnies dead and chewed on. ha ha.

    I'm going to try cayenne pepper and see how that does. I just re-assessed the damage and they ate 17 plants! [​IMG]
