I have (had) a patch of kohl rabi growing in my polytunnel 1 - 3 " in diameter. Due to the wet nature of our local climate I choose ventilation over temperature and only close the doors at night on very cold nights.
Last night a very careful thief entered the tunnel and has taken the kohl rabi not touching anything else. Carrots, beets, sprouts, onions, garlic, cabbage & radish were all ignored. There is no scratching or digging evident on the soil, no footprints, the curtain of agri fleece unruffled. The leaves have been left behind, however there is no debris other debris, the globes have vanished without a trace not even a dimple where they were rooted in the ground.
We do have badgers come into the garden digging big holes in the grass & helping themselves to my jerusalem artichokes, however I would have expected evidence of them, some impression in the soil.
There is a mouse hole nearby, could they have carted them off whole?
Anyone with any ideas would be appreiciated. I have closed the doors tonight!
