The fence is the neighbor's. About all I do is prop it up .
This is my large veggie garden. It isn't on my property and occupies considerably more ground than what I'd be happy to fence.
I've never tried a repellent - other than a rock. Throwing them, seems very ineffective with a rabbit. I've even hit them with a rock and they don't seem to know what happened or make a connection to the wildly gesticulating Mr. McGregor!
There is a great deal of tolerance for the cottontails in this neighborhood. Not far away, domestic rabbits have been turned out on a lawn! I can only hope that the coyote has made note of their whereabouts.
The signature line was only changed yesterday, Thistle' .
Love the sig line- reminds me of one of my favorite songs, which I often quote. "The only thing that stays the same is change..." Melissa Ethridge. (Not sure if that is the name of the tune, or just a line in it...) But, ain't it the truth??
Yeah, the rabbit is cute and all, but he needs to learn who's the boss over there, Steve! Maybe you need to borrow our Border Collie, Howdy, for a while. He will get rid of it for you. Just this morning he caught one of the squirrels that has been making nasty holes in one of our horse pastures. "Good Dog!" Or maybe you would prefer our Corgi, Gus. yesterday afternoon he cornered a rattlesnake so we could shoot it. "Good Boy!" I'm very glad I didn't run across that thing in my garden!!!!!
Tim: Well, that's no ordinary rabbit.
King Arthur: Ohh.
Tim: That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
Sir Robin: You twit! I soiled my armor I was so scared!
Tim: Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!
Sir Galahad: Get stuffed!
Tim: He'll do you up a treat, mate.
Sir Galahad: Oh, yeah?
Sir Robin: You manky Scots git!
Tim: I'm warning you!
Sir Robin: What's he do? Nibble your bum?
Tim: He's got huge, sharp... er... He can leap about. Look at the bones!
