I came home from work last night to find that something got through the barbed wire (OK, bird netting) and chewed one of the broccoli plants right at the stem. My first thought was “Oh no, I have cutworms!” but then I realized that the leaves laying at the base of the stem were actually chewed off a cauliflower plant in the next square, and the broccoli was 3 squares over. There were also some digging marks, thankfully in unplanted squares. I knew I was bound to lose some plants, but I didn’t think anything would want to eat broccoli! Apparently, they realized they don’t like broccoli anyway because they didn’t actually eat the plant, they just decapitated it. Meanwhile they left the lettuce and peas alone. Very strange.
