Animal Damage

It is the lower portion of the leaf petioles that are being physically eaten as these areas often contain a column of water and make for a quick in and out. While the exact animal has not been determined it is likely in descending order… squirrel, rabbit, woodchuck. What is odd, but good is that only about 1 leaf every day is eaten so it is likely a smaller animal. The electric fence has had more stakes included to help prevent the animal from getting under the netting and after a few days the damage was stopped.
