I planted onion plants about three weeks ago. Every day when I look, several of them have been pulled up. Some are even upside-down in the dirt with the tops buried in the dirt. Thinking maybe the birds mistook them for worms, I covered the area with a net, but it still happens! We have orange plastic fence around the garden, so I don't think any critters are getting in. Any ideas on what is happening? Thanks for any input you might have!

I would suspect a small rodent, such as mice or voles. The netting and the fencing would not deter them. This article will help give some tips: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/animals/garden-mouse-control.htm
