what's eating my broccoli (besides the cabbage worms)
there is an animal eating my broccoli, brussel sprouts & cauliflower. It will eat right out of the center of the plant sometimes, other times it eats half the plant, it is completely indiscriminate but only goes for these plants. it can't be a rabbit as the damage is too high for a rabbit to reach or is too far inside the plant for the rabbit to get to. the animal completely disregards the smell of blood meal. it eats the leaves even though they're covered in hot pepper wax. the animal is climbing over 8 foot high fence that has barbed wire on the top. my garden has turned into something like fort knox keeping the animal out. one day the animal even took a large patch of mulch out of the garden and i could see the trail of straw going up the fence and over it. any ideas who is doing this and how i can stop it? thank yoU!
