No Bunnies Allowed

My petite slightly raised garden bed is ... was... happily producing lettuce, swiss chard, peas and radishes until the adorable baby bunny emerged from beneath my neighbor's front porch.  First night he/she ate three rows of swiss chard.  So I googled rabbit repellent and sprayed what remained of the potential harvest with a mix of dish soap, hot sauce and water.  Next morning the peas were decimated.  I'll continue with the spray for a couple of weeks and see what happens.  The replanted swiss chard should be up by then and we can start over.... or not.  There's a lot to be said for visiting the Farmers' Market each Saturday.
