How do I keep squirrels and rabbits out of my vegetable garden?

Keeping Squirrels And Rabbits Out Of Your Garden

To keep squirrels out of your garden plant some lavender or sage around the plants you want to protect. These plants tend to deter the small critters. For rabbits the best thing to do is to put up a chicken wire 18 inch fence. Make sure that you bury the bottom of the fence several inches under the soil so that the animals cannot dig their way into your garden.
