Visits From The Bunny Rabbits

I come home each evening to find these adorable little bunnies in my yard.  They have become quite comfortable, they don't blink an eye when I pull into the driveway.  As a matter of fact, they look at me as if to say go around me.  I'm not moving!  We have found ourselves a feast.  As a matter of fact, we've invited all of our friends to join us.  If your stupid enough to plant more Impatients around that tree in your backyard, we plan to take those down too.  Yep, that's a summary of our conversation.  Either the bunnies or the deer ate my beautiful lavender Impatients down to the ground last summer.  Each evening more and more Impatients would disappear until there were literally none left. 

I'm planting to put out a small vegetable garden, and I've had to figure out how to keep these little bunnies out of my garden.  One of the solutions that I came across was using grated ivory soap.   That's exactly what I intend to do.  It seems easy enough.  Ivory soap is cheap, and I can purchase a kitchen grater from the dollar store.    

As you can see, my bunnies are quite healthy.  They start nibbling early in the morning and continue their feast into the evening.   If you have tried this ivory soap recommendation and it has worked for you, please let me know.  If you use another method, I would be interested in knowing that too!

  1. I have raised beds and so far nothing has invaded. This morning, however, I noticed that deer got to a couple of hostas.
