Crushed Stems

whizzer75(z7 Al)September 21, 2006

This morning I found two branches on the ground and one hanging by a thread. All appeared to be chewed or mashed until they broke. These were near the top of a Box Car Willie about 2 to 2 1/2 ft. tall (fall planting).

Not cut like a worm and no damage to leaves, buds or small fruit.

Any idea what kind of varmit would chew on a tomato stem?

I have squirrels but they have never chewed on stems, just fruit.

Woodchuck? Believe me, those suckers can climb.
