For years I would have agreed that black-eyed susans were varmint-proof, but no longer. It appears our local rabbits have developed a taste for them--sheared them off right about rabbit-head level. I couldn't believe it at first and like a fool put in a replacement. Next day, same thing--sheared right off. And my family wonders why, when I see rabbits, I think what a tasty dinner they would make!
