Should I Kill the Wabbits?

I planted a garden this year. Actually, my nine year old first planted a garden this year. I tilled the soil and she planted watermelons, pumpkins, peppers, onions and cilantro--all seeds. She may have watered them a few times and then I took over. I planted nine tomato plants and at this time they're all looking to be very promising. However, we have been experiencing a bunny infestation in the neighborhood lately and I was a bit concerned about them finishing off my garden. So, I created my own fence and thought that would be the end of it. (Note: I'm pretty sure this picture only shows weeds in the garden, but you can see the fence.)

Boy was I mistaken. The other day, Miss Sniz came in and told me about the wabbit that had been sitting near my fence for a long time. I decided to check out the situation and as soon as he scampered away, I saw what he was up to...

I guess it's my fault for using a plastic fence instead of something like chicken wire. Just a few days ago, I saw two very large deer walking around the neighborhood in the morning. I can now see that I'm going to have some stiff competition if I plan on eating what I grow.

So, what to do about that wabbit?

(YouTube Warning: I cannot control what links for other videos pop up after you view this one. Sometimes I'm really surprised at what comes up as a "related" video. For instance, how is a video called, wifes thighs in nylon related to a Bugs Bunny short feature?)

I love this video... ah, back when cartoons where good tv - instead of all this junk we've got now: pokeman and yugeo - whatever!

Great Cartoon! I just bought the kids a 4 disc Bugs Bunny cd. They love it, too

The way to keep rabbits out of your garden is to line the perimeter with titanium robots equipped with deadly laser eyes. You'd have learned this if you went to a farming school like Heritage instead of that fancy-pants New Haven.

I can't watch the video for some reason, but I do have a suggestion for bunny trouble. We put a little fence around our garden too, and then I took some old tin pie pans and cut them into "chunks". I punched holes in each piece and tied the pieces around the perimeter of the fence with yarn. They blow and flash and twist and voila! Our garden has been growing in peace ever since.

What memories the Bugs & Elmer video brings back. Don't kill the wabbits by the way!
