An Open Threat to Little Bunny Foo Foo

Little Bunny Foo Foo
I don't want to see you,
Eatin' up the garden
and makin' yourself at home.

And down came the meeeeeeeeeean Mommy
and she said:
Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you,
Eatin' up the garden
and makin' yourself at home.

I'll give you threeeeeee chances to stop eatin' up the garden
and if you don't, I'm turning you into food!

First it was the broccoli, every darned leaf--GONE.

Then it was the snapdragons, just the leaves but every bloom as well, they were yellow

Then it was the roses, the ladies at stamping insisted that bunnies wouldn't eat the roses because of the thorns.
This afternoon I actully *saw* the rabbit making herself at home to LAY DOWN by the rose bush to eat day lillies. Not only do I have a rabbit eating my garden, I have the world's laziest Mama Bunny. She dug herself a little indentation and flopped down so she could munch. I mean, I know what she feels like but come on, give me a break.When I went to get a closer shot she took off and I saw at least 4 little bunnies scurry with her and then another 2 over by the decimated broccoli. Come on, I got plenty of weeds. Pleeeeeeeease stay out of the stuff I'm actually TRYING to grow...or we'll have to eat you!

My great-grand parents raised rabbits for food in Germany. I bet my mom still has some great recipes.

can you leave some lettuce and carrots out for them? Maybe they will take the offerings and leave your plants alone? What mom wouldn't want to feed her babies ;-)

Julie Pippert said... you want to know how I solved my rabbit in the garden problem? (Hint: it involves leaping out of the frying pan into the fire.)

We are still working out the raccoon issue...

My friend sprayed her hostas with coyote pee -- she bought it at the hardware store -- and it totally is working! I'm not sure you would want it on your FOOD though...

I don't have any suggestions for keeping mama bunny and her brood out of your garden, but there's a really cute kid's book about a guy with the same problem called "Muncha, Muncha, Muncha".
