RE: Baby bunnies

LOL!!!  I don't know for sure.  I've never grown alfalfa.  (I had to buy
it.)   However, I have heard other folks say they had success by growing
something the bunnies really loved across the yard from prized young plants.
If you have enough coffee cans, you can also put them around new seedlings
or starts.  The bunnies especially LOVE tender green shoots.  By the time
the seedling/start is taller than the coffee can (both ends cut out) you can
remove the can.  The bunnies won't like the more mature and tough plant.
It wouldn't hurt to try it.

I didn't know that!

So, if I put out alfalfa, would they eat that instead of my plants?  Or
would it just attract more?
