I'm pretty sure that a rabbit got into my garden and ate the leaves off of my young broccoli plants as well as my cabbage plants. My question is...will I have to replant new plants in replace of these or is there a chance that something may still come from these plants? This is my first time planting either of these plants so I don't have a clue. Thank you.

I'm sorry your broccoli was a meal for a creature and not you! Yes, you could still very well get decent broccoli heads from your plants: depends on your weather conditions and how well you keep the rabbits (and other creatures) out going forward. Broccoli is a cold-weather crop, so if your weather is getting ready to get hot, you'll want to take some precautions.

Good luck, and I hope you get to enjoy your fresh broccoli -- there's nothing like it, so if it doesn't work this year, definitely try again!
