Imagine my surprise when I went out to check my garden after I got home from work and discovered that some of my new green bean plants have been eaten! Needless to say, I am not a happy camper. While I am a huge animal lover, I am not a fan of my garden being eaten. Not one bit. So I decided I’d try to beat the rain and make a trip up to Home Depot to buy some stakes to put leftover chicken wire on to keep the rascals out.
I purchased 10 stakes plus ties. It cost me $20. When I got home, I ran around looking for the hammer. After I found it, I pounded some stakes in the corners of the boxes, attached some of the chicken wire plus this green mesh netting thing around the green bean bed and tied it to the stakes. That ought to hold for a few days until I can get more blood meal or whatever it is that deters rabbits. I’m half tempted to leave my dogs out in the yard permanently now.
Not only am I angry that these darn rabbits are eating my plants, but now I’m aggravated I had to spend money to keep them out! Mr. Money suggested we get some plastic snakes to put out in the garden, and that may be another option.
Anyone hungry for rabbit?
