Beetroot eaten in the ground
Just wondering what could have eaten my beetroots? Surely it couldn't have been done by slugs and I don't see any rabbits or hares around.You might enlighten me. They were taken out of the ground in November with all this damage.

The photo shows more signifcant damage than slugs generally cause, and rabbits are the most likely, becaus e deer tend to eat the tops of plants. Rats are a possibility and curved shaved out bits on the ground are typical.
