Beans and Bunnies

Last year I harvest few beans, after some voracious bunnies (cute, but pests) mowed them down in a few evenings, despite fencing and a dog who chases them. So this year I am trying granular rabbit repellent and so far, so good. The first day I spread it on the perimeter of the bean bed, I noted no further damage to the beans and I have kept it up to good effect. This is a "natural" repellent, consisting of garlic, chilies, "putrefied egg whites" and other stinky things. Do not buy this and keep it in an enclosed car on a hot day, even unopened!
Happy gardening!
