[MittleiderMethodGardening] Aughh! Help!


SOMEthing is eating my broccoli. And sweet potato leaves.  No, not worms we've got few holes in leaves, instead the whole leaf, part of the stem and now the broccoli HEADS are missing!  We just had a good rain so there is soft earth around the boxes and no tunnels, paw or hoofprints.  No telltale little piles of poop, just a few crumbs of broccoli head in the dirt...not even any shredded leaf parts or pieces...whatever it is is making off with whole, foot-long leaves and 4-inch heads. Someone suggested cranes, but we are in town and they would have plenty of easy pickings further from people...it's been a good lush year here so the wildlife are less pesky than usual...or they were until now. We have had a murder of crows in the area...they fledged about five youngsters two weeks ago...and the damaged plants are all located so they could perch on the edge of the box to reach them....any ideas?
