Post Rabbits 
So the garden is growing great here, outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. I have already started to harvest radishes. However, I have a problem. The rabbits in the neighborhood have now moved in and started to eat some of my plants. I know that I could put up a fence, but my garden is just too beautiful and big to cover up the view from my patio.

So the question is, "does anyone know of other ways to keep rabbits out of my garden?"

Post The old - motion detector sprinkler. 
While this is an expensive option and I have mentioned it in other posts, it is one that I know works.
Havahart makes sprinklers that are around $50 that you attach to a garden hose. when an rabbit (or human) goes in front of it, it gives an 8 second blast of water and should keep them away.

Post Thank you 
Thank you Roy, but I would need a couple of sprinklers for my garden. I am going to try a castor oil based rabbit repellent first, to see if this keeps the rabbits out. I will let the board know if it works.
