All of my beans are in the fenced portion of my garden. I prefer to physically exclude bunnies rather than to try to kill them. It's a lot easier and I would not eat them anyway.

Thanks all. As Keith remarked, most of the tips were uneaten.It seems they're growing again. Here's the progress.

Last summer the deer munched down three 18' rows of field peas.

Many of the plants still had growing tips including some new shoots at lower leaf axils so I pruned them back to those new shoots and they came back nicely... *after* I put a netting tunnel over them.

Yours were munched harder at an earlier age but they should come back.

My peas are fenced. Just a small 3ft x 20 ft bed. Not so easy in the field. My salad
beds are hooped with row cover. Not a bad idea to get things going. Row cover is pretty
cheap and lasts a few seasons. (I get flea beetles in the spring). It does keep the bunnies
out of the salads.

Elder huntress pup got 4 bunnies last weekend. Erie squeak a bunny makes when
caught....just like the toys.

Then I had a mysterious pea seedling disappearance in a couple trays I planted to get a
head start in all this rain we have had. Thought it was birds or chipmunks. Seems
same bunny killer has taken a liking to pea shoots. Caught her with a mouthful after
finding the tray pulled off the potting bench. Thats what I get for putting micro greens
in her dinner bowl,
