My wife and I have wanted to start a vegetable garden for many years now, but our biggest obstacle is the wild rabbits! There are hundreds, if not thousands of them in our area and any vegetable plants we put are eaten overnight.
We are thinking of apportioning off a small section of our yard with rabbit-proof fencing, but there are the aesthetics to consider also, as we have an organic looking, beautiful yard and do not want fencing right in the middle of it.
Any recommendations? How can we deal with the rabbits (my wife already ruled out poisoning them and I tend to agree). Do wooden fences work? Can rabbits jump over them? Any other suggestions?
