I completely covered all my red currand bushes with deer netting and
put rocks on the ground to keep the nets tight. Still, someone has
managed to eat away at 90% of the berries when they just starting to
ripen. I'm suspecting chipmunks, but can't figure out how they could
reach berries 5ft high from the ground. has anyone had this problem?

Chipmunks are good climbers when it suits them-- but I have a bumper
crop of chippies and they get into everything else [pepper plants,
squash, cucumber plants especially this year] but have never bothered
I've never had anything eat mine. Let us know when you discover the
[for that matter- do you have a favorite recipe for them? I still
have a couple quarts from last year and mine should be ripening in a
week or two. I haven't made jelly for a while- but usually use mine
in muffins- or eat them fresh]

Oh boy! Same here. Red currant berries just disappeared. Nobody else could do
that but chipmunks. Now I understand why my dog found a new resting spot in the
yard very close to my 2 red currant bushes. Chipmunks completely cleaned my
strawberry patch last summer so I just quit growing strawberries. I promise to
put 100 traps around the yard if they start eating my cherries! Rats with
stripes! But pretty! :)
