I heard from two different folks yesterday things I didn't know before. One, if you want to scare bunnies away from your produce, Ginger says to plant marigolds around the vegetables. They don't like the scent. I think I had heard that about bugs, but didn't know it worked on other creatures as well.
Secondly, my friend Heidi says that big, scary groundhogs are more of a problem in her garden than rabbits.
My Granny had a wonderful green thumb and was a proponent of peace and justice. Rabbits were few and far between in Houston neighborhoods. But let a slug come anywhere near her garden, and she turned vicious. I still remember her cries of triumph as she sprinkled salt on those slugs.
My root vegetable series is, in part, tribute to her. I miss you, Granny.
