I don’t like this.
In case you can’t tell, what you see in the photo is a hole where a nice fat head of radicchio once grew. All that’s left is a splay of rootless outer leaves left to desiccate around the hole. A mole hole.
Short of putting hardware cloth beneath the entire garden (garden too big for that), what works to keep out moles?
I don’t want to be a hog, but I really like radicchio and don’t want to share with moles. They don’t even eat the whole plant, just plow through the roots, leaving wilted leaves and a sorry sinkhole.
I’m not going to go all Caddyshack over here, so what should I do, within reason? Help!
