Don't mean to hijack your thread but I was wondering the same thing about tomatoes.

This summer, I watched an eight point buck eating green tomatoes in our gardens. The first time I've heard of it or seen it. We also discovered they eat peanuts with gusto, pawing them out of the ground from an experimental patch (Any Georgians care to comment?).

Didn't know about potatoes.--i wonder how they'd do in a food plot?

Around here, the deer will eat the leaves on sweet potato plants, but they don't dig them up. After the plants have been pulled up for harvest, you'll see a bunch of deer in the fields eating the spuds left behind.
