I love gardening and our lill secret is we get our dog to pee around everything, rabbits hate the smelle and raccoons as well. I know it sounds weird but it’s been working for 3 years hehehe

Chicken wire is good to keep things from crawling underneath.  I also place it on top of my beds so the cats don’t think its a giant littler box- they don’t like the way it feels on their paws.  Maybe rabbits and racoons are the same?

Try sprinkling hot sauce-water mixture on and around the plants.

My family has always planted marigolds around the veggie garden to deter rabbits.  Depending on who you ask they will say it works amazingly, or its an old wives tale.  I’ve used it for years with pretty good results.

Interestingly, rabbits do NOT like the smell of bacon grease, so if you cook any bacon place some of the grease around the pot lips and see if that helps.  Otherwise you can use a cage that can be purchased at most hardware/nursery stores.  Good luck!
