and the first thing I thought to do was post to the Helpful Gardener. Crap, crap, crap! I planted like 30 broccoli plants last week, been watering them, and then it rains for a whole day. I go to check out my garden today and they are all gone! No Way! My garden has thrived this year with no pesticides or fertilizers. I missed a spring plant for broccoli due to a cutworm that attacked the sprout so I have been waiting sooo long for the fall broccoli planting. No evidence of an animal-no tracks or droppings. None of the other plants were harmed. My garden is enclosed but obviously not good enough. My guess is that it is a rabbit because if it was a deer jumping in, I would see tracks, right? There has been more rabbits this year than I have ever seen in my whole life!
So, IF I go get more broccoli plants, what do I do? Spray the heck out of them with pepper spray? I am 'everything organic' so I would love to hear some ideas of what has worked for you! I MUST defeat the WASKALLY WABBIT! I NEED BROCCOLI!
I think I will put my German Shepherd's crate out there too, that will detour the rabbits, right?
