Any suggestions I can use in the morning? Else all my green beans might be gone.

I hate cute little bunnies. Rats that hop.

While I could nail one at 50 feet with a bow, I can't baby sit. Any other suggestions? (besides, the rats are nasty food this time of year)

Some people swear by human hair along the borders of the garden. I'm gonna try it this week. I'm going to call beauty shops and ask them to save some of the hair they cut.

I discovered a momma bunny teaching her babies to eat beans and bean blossoms in my garden. I watched her lead them to the garden, push them through the fence, and stand guard while they ate. They're cute as a button, but I love my green beans!!

Next year I'm going to plant a few bunny favorites in another area of my yard, just for those little cuties. [Wink]

I have to say I'm a little disappointed with the Momma Fox about a 1/4 mile away. She should be teaching her young how to catch bunnies in the open.

I'm going to replant half the plot, no other choice.

I'm in the same situation. It's been raining for 3 days, so I haven't had a chance to do the hair experiment. I went out this morning and bunnies had eaten almost every bean, devoured the bean blossoms, chewed off most of the stems, and sat on the rest. I'm not sure if I'm going to replant or not.

The rain was a blessing, but who knew bunnies ate in the rain!!
