What is eating my lettuce starts?
I have raised beds. I put lettuce starts in twice in the last few weeks. Within a couple of days they are eaten down (see photo). Slug bait was put on immediately after planting and no evidence of slug trails. Could this be birds? I saw some song sparrows on the bed a couple of times. I put netting over one bed but too early to tell if helping. Your column in the Oregonian is the highlight of my week. Linda Ganzini
