Their leaves anyways. If you recall, I had a bit of a battle on my hands over my sweet potato plants as the bunnies who live in my backyard kept eating them. Apparently my dad has had the same problem with his sweet potatoes. He had them in a cage from the start but apparently his cage was too small and the bunnies were eating a neat little circle where they could get to the plant through the cage. Here’s a photo of some of the damaged stems, they are all around the outer rim of the plant.
Anyways, he changed to a larger cage and now the bunnies truly can’t get to them.
Beware if you plant sweet potatoes, the bunnies are coming.
