You can use row cover to completely cover the plants. Or spray BT once a week or so, especially if you start seeing the little white cabbage butterflies hanging around.

The bunny wabbits ate them all in one night??? I hope you catch them thar varmints... [grin]

Just a side note....there was an article in the local paper that our local hills are being taken over by bunnies! Apparently people have been dropping off unwanted bunnies and with more houses moving in the coyotes and mountain lions haven't been keeping up with the bunny explosion. Rabbits are usually not something most southern Ca. gardeners concern themselves with but those in the foothills are already starting to see quite a problem. [Roll Eyes]

Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

I hate to hear that Iowadahlia,
It's a little frustrating isn't it!?%^$*#!*%($# [Frown] [Mad]
Maybe try a row cover??

Or pop bottle covers until they are big enough??

Or you know we used in our pumpkin patch,
we found some old toole they were trying to
get rid of cheap!!! And we put that all the way around the edges of the bed.
It was maybe just foreign enough of a substance that they didn't want to trample over it...??? NOT sure, but no one went in there to fuss with anything in there!!!

Can you re~plant them????
Is there time???
