I have grown cucumbers for the past 4 years without an issue. I have gard then is fenced in and has a bout a 3 to 4 ft wire mesh all around it (im going to re check everything) but at first glance there is not visible holes dug in. I also have the wire mes about a ft down below the ground.

The issue is the tops of young cucumber plans now have been eaten in the ground, in a raised bed and in a ft high container.

Any ideas, in my yard i have rabbits, groundhogs, and i keep seeing this little mole mess with me in the garden. Early I also had the same problem with my sugar snap peas...just the tops of the plants. an and what ever it is stopped by for a snack on my lettuce too.
