GroundHOGs can climb fences. There is one demolishing my sweet potato vine foliage inside a fenced bed. I'm going to cover the top with some combination if screen, deer netting, and plastic film and hope the sweet potatoes will have a chance to recover. I will also reinforce the back yard fence where it's getting in by climbing over the chicken wired split rail fence....and if that doesn't work, I'll turn on the battery operated electric fence which I normally ont need until apples are almost ready to pick later in August or early September.

the semi dwarf apple tree to steal the apples.
