It’s too soon to know whether there is time for the peas and carrots to recover from the bunny incident. But our back door salad greens have been wonderful.
We’ve been picking the spinach and lettuce leaves as needed, leaving the plants intact. Although, there came a time when some of the plants were spent and/or producing seed. Those plants were removed to make space for new seeds to go into the soil. Leaving some mature plants provided shade for the new greens, which would have suffered in the strong sun and heat of June. It’s been a near perfect system. Of course without the 16oz jar of cayenne pepper, most assuredly the rabbits would have had ALL our greens.
