what is eating my broccoli plants

I have been struggling to save my broccoli, kale and brussel sprout plants.  I have enclosed them with chicken wire and wrapped that with weed fabric.  Yet something continues to eat the leaves of those there plants.  Does anyone recognize the pattern of what is eating these plants from the pictures above?  I have tried slug repellent with mixed results.  If you recognize the bite pattern what would suggest to stop this from happening?  Diatomaceous earth?  Thanks for your help

I tried soap suds, mats on the ground, onion sprays, DE and nothing worked until I sprayed Neem oil. It worked on everything. It's a bit expensive, so I kept an eye out at for a deal, and eventually found one (and even got free shipping). Good luck, hope it works for you too!
