    It could be anything from slugs to deer - can you post us some pictures of the damage please, and tell us a bit more about your garden and the plants you're growing image

     I have a terraced house back garden so no deers (unless there climbing deers).  The actually veg plot is 6m x 1m.  We haven't really seen any slugs this year, however we do a snails, theres evidence of catapillers because ive seen them but not much evidence of butterflies.  hope this helps

    I think this is slug and snail damage.  I'd make some beer traps for the slugs 

    There's some good information here http://www.instructables.com/id/Slug-Trap-from-Recycled-Water-Bottles/ 

     

    Good luck image
