Public Enemy No. One

Above is a photo I found on the internet of a bunny. Cute, you say. Darling! you cry. How sweet!


The bunny out back has eaten all forty of my echinacea plants. Some of which were two-three years old. And giant. And thriving.

I suspected as much a few days ago. But it was only when I began digging under all the straw mulch I'd buried them in for winter that I discovered --- the bunny has eaten them. All forty of them.

The bunny is in deep doodoo because I am now on the hunt for anti-bunny defense materials.

It's now me vs. the bunny.

Ack! My heart goes out to you. Mike McGrath has some helpful hints about rabbits here:


Love your blog name, btw.

Echinacea? You must have some healthy rabbits! ;)

Our garden fence works well at keeping out rabbits, but not gophers. But here's a story that may cheer you up.

Coming home two nights ago my headlights came upon a barred owl on our road crouched over something. I smiled as the owl ascended with a struggling fluffy-tailed varmint in its clutches.

I like rabbits OK, but I like owls too.

Ooooooh, owls!

Owls carry off bunnies. !

I had moles a year or so ago, and drenched the yard in castor oil --- it actually worked. I don't know if it would work for gophers, though.

Galactic, thanks for reminding me about mike McGrath - I'd completely forgotten about him. He's great and I know he has a solution!
