Went out to my garden today, to find about 50% of my sweet potato plants eaten down to just the leaf stems and vines.
There’s a small hole in the netting, which I repaired, and based on the size of the path where the vines are trampled down, I’m guessing a rabbit or possibly a groundhog.
About half the patch has only minor damage, see below, I feel like this area will be fine, as long as I can prevent further damage.
Other half looks like this. Now, the vines are growing extremely vigorously at the moment, so I wonder if they may recover. I just hope they don’t zap too much energy out of the developing roots to destroy my harvest.
What do you think?
