I need advice on how to ward off crazy tomato-stealing squirrels!
I have three tomato plants in pots on my back porch
(they're in pots because I'm renting, can't plant them ),
and something ( squirrels i think) keeps picking tomatoes off the plants even before they're ripe, and leaving the rotten remains around the backyard!
I've tried sprinkling cayenne pepper around the plants to stop squirrels (or whatever it is) to stop taking them, but to no avail.
two more are gone.
At this rate I'll have no yield at all! only one survived long enough to ripen!
Also crazy squirrels attacked my cucmber plants a few weeks ago and not only did they eat the cucumbers, but dug up the entire plant and tore it to shreds!
Does anyone have advice for me to ward of these crazy squirrels or other animals?!
