Got just enough rain to keep me out of the garden. But the Rabbits have been eating the leaves off the Blueberries.

So I GOT SOME HARDWARE CLOTH  and made surrounds to keep them out. I also ventilated a 55 gal drum for a burning barrel.( used a 1 inch hole saw).

Again I clamped the wire with pig rings. I'm down into the last 100 count box so will have to pick up a couple more. that's the box ,rings and pliers on top of the drum.

I'm a little surprised as overcast and cloudy as it was the picture is over exposed?

Good luck with the hardware cloth.  Those rabbits have relatives here that have eaten my blueberry bushes too.

Yeah there is going to be a fight! Honestly I don't mind sharing. I have almost 3 acres of white clover and they can eat their fill.

But if they don't leave my berries alone, their going to learn how well a one eyed guy can shoot a .22 (did I ever mention a hobby i did for a few years, Bench Rest Rifle and handgun Sihilloette).

This is the third year they have been in and should have started producing this year. The little buggers are selective eaters and just pick all the leaves off?

I use either my .45 or a pickaxe to do this... these days the ammo is to hard to come by though.
