Birds are attacking my Tomato Plants
Haven't gardened since I was a girl, started 3 tomato plants, every time a tomato turns red the birds will sneak in and pick a perfect round hole in them, this is the 4th tomato they've hit, any ideas? Can I wrap them in paperbags to hide the red color? Is the sun needed to actually ripen them? Stupid question I know. Also there's this weird fungus type look to about 1/25 of my leaves, I trimmed them off mostly but feel I might have done more damage to the poor things than anything else, not sure what is safe to even spray on them and you know how hard it is to find some kind of tomato plant expert at lowe's or home depot, they don't exist. Any ideas would help me alot.
