Maybe next year I will venture into the yard and plant in the ground, though I have not had to deal with bunnies on the deck


With your tomatoes at least, you are safe going into the yard. Bunnies, even the most sophistocated cottontail, will not eat a tomato. I've had a momma bunny raise a brood or 2 in the hay mulch under my tomatoe plants ... and not a plant was nibbled by them.

Squirrels on the other hand ................. will sometimes steal almost ripe tomatoes right off the vine. Didn't believe it until one day when I had a tomato fall from great height (like 50+ feet overhead) when the squirrel lost his grip on one of my beefsteaks. Never completely found a cure for squirrel predation, so I just planted a couple of extra plants thereafter so I could "write off" the losses.

BTW, deer, woodchuck, etc. will also leave your tomato plants alone. Wish I could say the same for green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, etc.
