What has happened to these carrots and beets? New vegetable bed at an old farmhouse in North Devon.

    They’ve been eaten ... I can see signs of slugs as well as gnawing by rodents ... could be voles, rabbits, rats .... some or all of them. 

    I would have harvested and stored them before winter.  You can leave some varieties of carrots in the ground if protected from frost, but they are tempting to hungry wildlife.
