For the last two years I haven’t had a garden to speak of. Last year we were working on the house so a garden wouldn’t have gotten taken care of…the year before I had a garden but had scaled back a lot.
I’ve been so excited for this year’s garden. Hubby brought dried manure home to get it in shape…we bought a tiller…I had big plans. I even blogged about it a couple times. In the comments someone said I hope you don’t have rabbit trouble.
I laughed that off…after all I live in town. I’d have more rabbits in the country right?? WRONG. I have rabbits and lots of them.
I planted garden with such expectation and have a couple times almost given up. It’s so frustrating. Note there haven’t been many garden blog posts.
Frustrated, I finally said to Hubby something has to be done. We went to the farm store and asked what they recommended for rabbits. We were planning a fence even though we didn’t want one. Then he suggested this…..
We were skeptical- but- we didn’t want a fence so decided to give it a try. It has done a great job.
Here’s a picture of the childcare kiddos running around the garden trying to catch butterflies. I never thought the garden would look this good after the rabbits feasted on it.
…and here’s one of the girls picking peas. She loves doing that.
I’m so thankful that the stuff worked. Doing all the work to have a garden and then getting no crop because of rabbits or deer is so frustrating. I hope it continues to work.
