Something ate one of my giant pumpkin plant!

I’m pretty sure that something was a rabbit. I have them covered at night with additional row cover right over the plants themselves  to protect them but evidently the wind blew one of them partially off and some of the leaves are half gone. I think it will survive. I think they are getting in under the gates-I’ll have to do something about that! The rabbits aren’t interested once the pumpkin plants get big so I’ll have to keep a close watch on them and covered at night for now…

    Jannine, What if you buried some chicken wire at the gate entrance that protruded up from the ground about 3 inched and overlapped the gate. you would have to step over it, but it would seal the gap.
