    Two days ago I set out 6 tomato plants. Today two of them are nothing but green sticks standing sadly in their cages. All the leaves are gone! The other 4 plants look untouched. The two that were eaten were both grape varieties, the other 4 are not.

    I didn't see any insects on them. We do have a large rabbit population. Do rabbits eat tomato plants?

    This is the first time this has ever happened. Usually my tomatoes are fine until they are just about to ripen and then the squirrels start getting at them.
