  1. Hi, my name is Johnny and I live in zone 6.  I've been gardening since I was a child, helping my father in his gardens.  Now being 42 and having teenagers of my own I wanted to pass my knowledge on to them.  They seem to be enjoying watching and learning as the garden grows.  I'm looking forward to picking up some advice and knowledge from all of you here.  As of late, I've been having issues with a few rabbits nibbling on my plants.  Which I hope to alleviate with a live trap from Havahart.

    Hey Johnny, Havahart is one of our forum sponsors so perhaps you'll win the live trap for free from them? 😀

    Please do share photos of your garden and pass on any tips you've found in the other parts of the forum as well.

    Happy to have you

  2. Hi Johnny, I'm also a zone 5-6 grower.  I live in Wilmington, Ohio and own a Florist/Garden Center.  We (along with Wilmington College) started a Tomato event 3 years ago.  I don't know if it will interest you, but the 3rd Saturday in August (18th) we will be showcasing over 100 different varieties of tomatoes for the public to try.  We actually are growing nearly 125 varieties at the Farms at the College to observe tolerances to disease, habit and yield.  This year we are going to add acidity trials on tomatoes. 

    The event is free to the public and I sponsor a "heaviest tomato" and "best tasting tomato" competition with cash prizes.

    Good Luck on the rabbits.  We have customers who try Marigolds, Blood Meal, Cayenne Pepper and other home remedies, but physical barriers seem to have more success.  Deer, ground hogs, raccoons and rabbits are a nuisance and sometimes dogs and cats.  A lot of the remedies are based on stench, but our experience of success is to have a physical barrier (fence) or some kind of bait for a trap.

  3. Good luck with those rabbits!  Chipmonks are the bane of my existence.  I've been using Fox Urine and Bonide's pest repellant granules.  They work but after a rain the critters come back.  A friend suggested I stop spending all my money and use my own pee around the boundaries of my yard.  He says it's just as affective.  LOL  I'll try that when I run out of all the other junk I bought.
