    Does anybody have any ideas what would come and dig up our onion bulbs up? There was a trench about 2 feet long in the garden yesterday morning and all the onions were just laying out in the open. We live in town so other then rabbits cats and maybe opossums running around no idea.

    In Minnesota wow those little buggers really travel. :haha:

    I'm leaning towards raccoons or opossums.

    They have extended their range immensely in the last 20 years.

    I have had the experience of crows pulling up the sets. Guess they think corn seed might be at the bottom? I hate crows. Just an idea. Rita
