One rabbit can be cute, but usually they don't exactly enjoy the single life and before you know it you are feeding a whole family.
I had rabbit and squirrel problems when we lived in the foothills. They would eat the young plants faster than I could replace them. Since I am only a small scale gardener I dusted my plants with red pepper and that seemed to do the trick. After a few days they got the message and stayed out of the vegetables. Though we did have a lot of fruit trees and I didn't mind them picking up a few fruits, especially the ones that had dropped to the ground. They also kept my boysen and raspberry bushes from growing too wild.
In return the squirrels would leave me little presents in the form of sunflower seeds in my rose bed.
Every once in a while I would come out in the morning and found dozens of little sunflower seedlings poking their heads out of the ground. When it was a convenient spot I would thin them down to one or two, cage them until they where big enough and let them grow. Always interesting to see what kind of seeds they had buried this time.
