I never had any problems with rabbits until I started growing daylilies. They would come and nibble at night and I'd find half-eaten leaves the next morning. One night my yellow labrador, Tanner, killed one in the middle of my yard and I haven't had a problem since. They must have all witnessed the demise of their cohort and decided that my place is better left alone. The only other garden pests I've ever had, besides insects, was a border collie that would uproot any newly placed plant and tear it to pieces, and a flock of guineas that would get into my Texas Skullcap looking for bugs and scratch every single twig off. Well, I shipped the mutt to Oklahoma on accident and sold the guineas to a business associate.
The list was pretty close to correct for rabbits in my area, but maybe those other rabbits have adapted to what's available in their area. I always enjoy your articles Toni, so keep 'em coming!
