Yesterday, late afternoon, as I was sitting outside contemplating all the flower containers I filled during the day, I spotted a big black bunny hopping into the back yard. As he crossed the lawn and headed for the garden area all I could think of was, "You can keep right on hopping, cause all my veggies are in a tabletop" Smile

Very Happy funnily enough I was thinking when a Large White butterfly came fluttering in "you can keep on going, nothing for you to see here, these are not the brassicas you are looking for".

Fortunately, my brassicas were all covered with tulle when the white butterfly with the two dark dots on its wings came by.

Yep, got the tabletops wrapped in tulle except for the space I pulled back for the snap peas.

That's the sort, we have two flutterbyes like that, the Large White and the Small White. I've got my brassicas covered over too. And the carrots.

Does your garden stay covered the whole season? Do you take the covers off at anytime during the day? [Sorry for the italics, I'm not sure why I can't seem to take it off]

If you highlight your text and then click the I icon on the panel above the white box that you type your reply in it will take off the italics... I think.

Not all of mine stays covered, just if or when the plants need protection from something.

Heidi,

I planted all my brassicas in the same SFG box along with some lettuces and beets. As none of these need pollination, I keep the tulle over them at all times, except when actually working in the bed.

This should prevent most of those pesky insects from trying to lay their eggs and damage my crops.

Still not sure how I will handle my warm weather crops that need pollination. Some I can hand pollinate, others ??

Two more made the crossing this evening. These are not pets. I live next to Mr. McGregor's Cabbage Patch. Very Happy

Middle Mama, I'm sure not fond of our coyotes, but maybe they're why I don't usually see rabbits. Funny enough (not), I've never seen a rabbit in my five years in this house until today. It was sitting on my patio. I'm guessing it's not a coincidence that he's here a few weeks after I put in my first garden. Everything looks okay so far, but we only have one square that isn't fenced/caged in. And hopefully that last one will be finished this weekend.

Eh, the coyotes are too scared to come close to do us harm...they just wanna eat my voles and rabbits. They are welcome to stay as long as they want. Smile Hawks and owls help too. Smile

We have a new tiny little bunny in our backyard. I think he lives under the deck. At least that's where the doxies spend most of their time when they are looking for it. They can't get under there to get after it but they can see through the lattice.

Big black bunny? If they're not escaped pets, they might be a feral colony. Wild rabbits (cottontails) are "chestnut", which is brown with black ticking, basically. They are actually a different species from our domestic rabbits, which are actually European in origin. Very Happy

Black, and light brown... sounds like a feral colony. Escaped or freed rabbits now multiplying. *sigh*

Most freed rabbits end up being prey, but occasionally they survive and set up their own colonies. They can be pretty destructive, even undermining the foundations of houses. Shocked

Glad your SFGs are out of reach!

I didn't know that, but it makes sense.

The other I learned on a rabbit forum I'm a member of. One of the ladies on there was having to push her local animal control to take care of a colony begun by freed rabbits. The rabbits were feral, and were very prolific and destructive. They were burrowing under several houses, endangering the foundations.

Several others chimed in with their feral rabbit experiences. It's not good.

Wild rabbits don't normally put houses at risk, because they don't want to live that close to people. Close enough to raid their gardens, but not close enough to live under their houses.

I did not even think of the damage to homes. Down here feral hogs are a real danger to the ecosystem and cause a huge amount of crop loss to local farmers.
