    I left a couple big patches of lettuce and spinach for them to munch on and they're ignoring that and eating my fucking tomato plants... All that was left of a couple were the stem.

    Anyone got any ideas on how to deal with these rabbits... poisoned hamburger, land mines, what's a good way to get rid of these bastards. I noticed there were baby rabbits around when I mowed for the first time this year and now I regret not chopping their bastard offspring up with the mower.

    Tight mesh fencing. You have bury about 3-4 inches of it or they will burrow underneath to get in. On a related note, these critters enjoy the sprouts. Next time, keep them housed until they are around 6 inches tall or more. The fence, is by far the easiest path to keep them out of your garden.

    Poison is a bad idea as it kills indiscriminately when left in the open. I would recommend a simple .22lr rifle and a good recipe for hasenpfeffer. If you're on your own land, you may not have to wait for hunting season to be legal, depends on the state. In the mean time, have you tried fencing?

    Why not have rabbit and tomato stew?

    I've thought of the ultimate solution, I need to cage those bunnies up and let them create rabbit poop to fertilize the garden with.

    One strand of electric fence about 8 inches off the ground.
    But you will need to abandon your garden for a while if a skunk gets into it.
