Do squirrels eat greens???

7 years ago

I posted an earlier message about not knowing what's eating my chard. I can't see any insects, there are no rabbits here, and it's not mice. I thought it was something that attacked only at night since I never see anything. But now that "something" has moved on to my lettuce!

The only critter that's around is a big gray squirrel. Do they eat greens? I thought they only ate nuts. I've never seen it in my raised bed and I'm home a lot and look out at my yard a lot. But it is around and lives in trees next to my house.

So, does anyone know? I can't catch it in the act, but it's the only thing that makes sense. But I didn't think they would eat out of gardens!
