put a fence around your garden...about 18 inches high is all you'll need. We have the "wild kingdom" in our backyard, rabbits GALORE, chipmunks, squirrels, voles, ground hogs, the occasional deer, etc., and they don't come near our garden! :o)
You can buy "rabbit fencing" and wooden stakes at Home Depot/Lowes pretty inexpensively. Because the top edges of the fence are sharp, I sliced a cheap garden hose fully lengthwise, and straddled it over the top edge of the fence, securing it in place with small cable ties, so my little ones wouldn't scratch themselves.
The same fence we've used has lasted over 5 seasons, and looks like we can get an indefinite number more! :o)
