|There are a number of animal repellent sprays that would help deter rabbits from eating your veggies. Try 'Get Away' or 'Deer Away'. 'Deer Away' is efffective in deterring deer and rabbits and lasts 7-10 dayswithout washing off. Natural scent repellents are also available such as fox and coyote urine. I have found that rabbits quickly realize there is no actual threat though. You could also try constructing a fence of 1-inch chicken wire that should be 2 feet high and buried at least 6 inches deep around your veggie garden. Consider also interplanting your veggies with Mexican marigold or dusty miller. Bunnies tend not to like their aroma.
