    A rabbit happened ... sorry bout that. This has been one of the reasons I have been trying to create a cool sarr hybrid since I was 10...they always eat it! Next season, or if there are any flowers left then I recommend that you put something over the flowers...like bagging them. I usually do that but this year the barn owls helped out a lot by catching the rabbits. The last pic still looks like that flower might still might be able to make seeds...


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I don't think it could have been a rabbit. I probably should have mentioned that I live in the middle of Brooklyn and these plants are on the roof of a 4 story building.

    The breaks almost look like they were cut. However there's a point in the development when the stalks are brittle and will snap apart cleanly like a carrot. Otherwise the stalks will just break and bend like a straw. Bend one quickly and see if it is in the "carrot" stage. If so I'd suspect two legged critters with wings. Or maybe someone was moving furniture or something and snapped the flowers off accidentally and panicked and tried to hide the evidence. Otherwise someone out of malice or some other reason cut them off and took the buds. Was there enough wind that could have blown the buds away?

    That second picture sorta looks like it was gnawed on. Maybe one of those infamous sewer alligators?

    ;@Nan thanks for the input. There is some wind on the roof but I found two or three of the buds in the dirt. I just tried snapping the stems and you are correct, they seem to be at the "carrot" stage. Also, dont know if this is important but right as I opened the door I saw some birds fly away from right next to the "crime" scene.

    @Butch, the rats here are always in the subway never up top on roofs.
