Most of my garden is in containers; however, I need to plant beets in the ground. Is there anything more attractive than a rabbit fence available? Or, maybe rabbits don't like beets?

I think rabbits will munch on just about everything in the garden, beets included. If you don't want to use fencing or build a frame to drape birdnetting over your plants, you might want to try using one of the repellants available in garden centers. Deer Away keeps both deer and bunnies from munching on leaves. It needs to be reapplied after a rain. Hope this helps!
