Rabbit Explosion



The Giving Garden is experiencing an explosion of the rabbit population that is beyond our past experience.  As the above picture shows, fence barricades are not stopping the rabbits from finding ways to eat tender crops.  The “sticks” are what is left of the green bean plants that I started at home and transplanted in my bed.  They lasted one day.  This year the rabbits are eating crops they’ve never bothered before.  They are eating young okra, pepper plants, sweet potato vines, beans…nothing seems to be safe.

The Board will meet this Thursday evening at 7 p.m. to discuss the problem and potential solutions.  Meetings are held at the Indian Creek Clubhouse, located at 1689 Bandera Dr, Carrollton, TX 75010.   The meeting is open to any gardener.
