First time gardener encounters a nest of baby rabbits!!
Digging, toiling, weeding, shoveling, with corn, tomatoes, carrots, etc growing in my back yard. I've suspected some rabbit damage, but it hasn't been much. However, one day I spotted a really strange acting rabbit. I tried to shoo it away, tried to scare it, and it just wouldn't budge. I thought it was either the bravest rabbit in the world or it had rabies. Turns out, under my deck a few feet from my garden was a nest of baby bunnies, about four or five of them.
The question is, I'm not really sure what to do with them. Will they cause irreparable damage to my hard earned crops? I don't really wanna kill them, and I don't want to mess with them as I'm afraid moving them will make their mother abandon them and they'll starve to death. Should I just ignore them? Will they find another food source? I figured if the rabbits really wanted to eat my crops, they would have done so already, but the crops haven't grown much yet.
