    That dog is not living up to his end of our arrangement. Guess I am getting plants from the nursury this year.

    Sure it wasn't the dog? Mine will eat every plant in the garden if given a chance. He loves collard leaves and fresh dug taters. LOL

    I had a herd (?) of cottontails eating my sweet potato plants faster than I could plant them last year. In desperation, I got some of that electric fence wire that looks like hay-twine, & ran it down both sides of the row about 4 inches off the ground, & tied it on to the electric fence that runs behind the garden. Worked like a charm.
    This year, I made some little tunnel things out of vinyl coated poultry wire to keep them out of the cabbage.
    I guess I'm just an old softie, but I love rabbits, just not in my garden.

    My mom is having a similar problem with crows...they ate every single corn plant she had up the other day.

    Sorry you lost your broccoli....rabbits are total vegetarians and are very repulsed by the smell of blood....get yourself a pile of bloody chicken livers, dilute the blood a little....and sprinkle it around the plants. However....I don't know anybody who lost a lot of broccoli in one night to rabbits.....sounds more like a groundhog to me...hence the name....they don't leave anything behind. Groundhogs respond to nothing short of a gun....sorry....kathyrnlmv
