Critters – 1, Me -0

Something is attacking my garden and only eating my kale. This distresses me greatly. We put a mesh fence around all the beds but whatever is eating must be capable of climbing the fence (squirrels?) or digging under ( ground hogs?) Do cats eat greens? And why are they only eating my kale? Now I live in the City of Newark, New Jersey for those of you unfamiliar with the northeastern U.S. we are strictly City but I do live across the street from a large County park. No deer venture within several communities of me but we do have raccoons, opossum, ground hogs, skunks, cats, squirrels, and lots of birds. Haven’t caught anything in the act and I am very upset. If anyone has any ideas about the culprit and/or prevention let me know.

  1. Probably a ground hog…. one ate all of mine the other evening as well, so I hear you! (Apparently ground hogs climb fences). I’m pretty doubtful of the other animals being the culprits and ground hogs seem to love kale.
    Like your blog! Very positive.
