frustrations rabbits in the yard
This is a first for me. A rabbit has nested in my backyard and produced 5 or 6 babies. Obviously, I won't be able to move the nest out but what do I do now to protect my plants. This rabbit has already destroyed my apple tree and some trollius flowers. The animal has longer hind legs by the way. Is this a hare or a rabbit?
Ever since I installed a pond, I've had raccoons visiting and now this mother rabbit. Footsteps on the fence and in the pond liner point to nightly visitors.
I haven't started a vegetable garden a result. I wanted to attract birds, especially swallows but instead I got magpies and a couple of robins.
