I'm annoyed at the herbivory (that this one) has done on my beans this summer. While we were away, there's definite evidence of leaves and vines snipped (only the beans, at the point -- parsley and greens were earlier in the summer).
These are raised beds in the FRONT of our small house in the mountains, but it's definitely in an urban area, and really, woodchucks? by the driveway?

But, as the big Cherokee Purple and Black Krim start ripening (the San Marzanos, too), the slugs appear and start burrowing out holes. Yuck. Time to harvest!
