Death Valley Plants
Evil Bunny

      It's amazing how much little bunnies can eat! The first action I took to get rid of the bunnies was to attempt to bunny-proof my fence, which was already rabbit-proof, BTW. As it turns out a little bunny can hop right through a gap in the fence which is less than two inches wide. So, in order to bunny-proof my fence I'd have to buy a ton of chicken wire and tack it up around the full perimeter of my yard. Not happening! Instead I purchased rabbit-resistant plants to replace the plants that had been eaten by the bunnies. Rabbits don't like garlic, rosemary, wormwood, Russian sage, or other plants with a strong smell. Also they won't eat poisonous plants such as oleanders or datura and, obiously, plants with spines are not bothered by rabbits either. I had particular difficulty finding a ground cover that the bunnies wouldn't eat. So far the myoporum I planted has been ignored by the bunnies. Hopefully it will be able to survive the ridiculously hot summers here in Trona!

Little bunny in my backyard
Ravenous herbivore
You eat my plants and I hope you realize
That this means war!

You nibble here and you nibble there
My yard's a salad just for you
Missing plants are evidence
Of the evil that you do!
