Something's eating my veggies.

Can anyone say if I have a rodent, or insect problem with regard to my squash? I'm in year 3, and this is the first year that I've had a pest problem. Also, what insect do you think is responsible for the broccoli damage in the last photo? Thanks! James

You copied the wrong location for the photo. The http address should end in '.jpg'.

With my Mac, I just right click and choose 'copy image location' and then paste the link between the [img] brackets at HG.

I clicked our Img button, pasted in your URL, then clicked our Img button again.

You can always use the preview button to see what your post looks like, whether your pix came through or not, etc.

The ones on FB I don't have permission to see, must be restricted to your friends only.

So I can't see your broccoli damage.

The squash one above looks like an insect. Look around below the hole, see if you see any little sawdusty looking stuff (which is droppings of the borer worm, that it pushes out its door). If so, its squash vine borer, and your plant will likely be dead in a few more days. But the hole doesn't exactly look like that, and I'm not seeing the frass (droppings) in the picture, so maybe you are lucky and it is something else.

Thanks for the photo advice. I think I figured it out. James
