Any suggestions of outdoor edible plants that don't typically get eaten by rabbits? My basil and chives have been successful, but everything else gets eaten by the rabbits (bok choy, Kale). I love in Dallas btw - so hot and dry in the summer. Winters are lowest at 20 degrees. Any season suggestions welcome!

What about rosemary- it is more of a bush if it has grown...peppers are quite easy to grow

I don't eat rosemary, but I'll look into it anyway since it seems hardy! And I'll also look into bell peppers! I put some jalapeños in the ground 2 weeks ago!

I'm also in DFW. You'll need to either spray with chili oil or put up fencing. Rabbits are very persistent.

I grow some sacrificial lettuces and clover for them to attract them away from my garden.

That's genius. I found out during the snow days that the rabbits come from all around the gates and doors and such, so I don't think I'll be planting multiple patches of sacrifices, but I do think that was a good idea

I have been planting most of my veggies and berries in 100 gallon water troughs which are about 3 feet off the ground. Not only does it keep rabbits away, but the height makes harvesting a lot easier

like

That's a great idea actually. How did you make it raised so much? What did you fill it with?

i own rabbits, they love carrot tops, cilantro, parsley, lettuce, mint, kale, broccolini, and other leafy greens and herbs, grass, and especially love fruit. i'd suggest not growing the things listed above, and growing things that are not easily reached from the ground (i.e. trees and taller shrubs). they can jump about 30 inches high.

binder clips will work fine. even paper clips can do the trick. just get it nice and snug and it won't fall. the netting is pretty rigid on its own.

I definitely have to eat my words on the lowest being 20 degrees, especially since it got down to 1F last week. I have some bok choy, mint, chives, and some flowers plants alive. I think most everything else is dead because I didn't cover it.

For sure! I'll DM you
