Yep, sounds like mice, rats or blummin squirrels, Leggi.
Hi , I had always been led to believe that we Humans were the only animal that eat onions
I think rodents will eat almost anything if they are hungry enough, Derek, and it's been a looong Winter!
BOG True True
Here in the Furness Peninsula. South Cumbria, we have occasional visits by deer, usually when it snows. This Winter, most of my onion sets have been pulled out and eaten by them. As well as seeing them at it, their footprints in the onion bed have added to the weight of evidence. When I had an allotment in Carlisle (North Cumbria), we were plagued by rabbits. They'd eat everything but rhubarb, onions and potatoes. Slugs and snails have ruined wallflowers over Winter as well. We do have rodents, but lots of semi-feral cats keep them down.
