Although marigolds aren't edible, I though someone on this list might have
had an experience like this. My wife planted a row of large, golden marigol
ds along part of the sidewalk that leads to the back door. They've been the
re for a few weeks now. This afternoon, something tore the three large flow
ers off one of the plants and left them on the lawn a few feet away. Only o
ne plant was damaged, the other nine or ten are unharmed.
They were OK this morning but she noticed the damage after lunch. Two of ou
r barn cats hang around the back door, which should discourage birds and ro
dents. We've had nighttime visits from raccoons, possums, and a coyote but
those are rarely seen during the day.
Very strange; anyone have any idea about what could have caused this?
