I am starting to get a bit frustrated with the nome that lives in one of the sets of raised vegetable beds in our back field. When I went to check on the gardens after the rains yesterday the zucchini plants had been pulled up and all the flowers eaten. There fences around the gardens so I know it wasn’t deer or any of our animals. Today I went to pick some green beans for dinner and found that all the jalapeños had been pulled off their plants and thrown to the ground — guess the nome doesn’t like hot. This is the first year we have had this problem so I am not sure what to do about the issue. Have any of you had this type of problem? If so, how did you handle the situation?
