WAR IS ON
The little squirrels have to eat too. They will reward you with their lovely antics :)

But i leave them the lovely peanuts in the shell to eat and store for later AND all the bird seed they poach. I draw the line at my tomatoes. My tomatoes I didn't get last year due to blight. My tomatoes that I wait all winter to plant and lovingly tend. Dang critters.

I'm just jealous that you have tomatoes ripe enough for the squirrels to eat! I'm still at least 2 weeks out.

Would you like to borrow my shiba inu? He works wonders keeping the squirrels off my balcony and my tomato plants!

Not that I could ever shoot a squirrel but once upon a time I used to be quite the Annie Oakley with a BB Gun... Maybe you can just take a Super Soaker to the little beasts? Tomato stealing is serious business.

I had to laugh at this. As a child, I watched our pepper plant produce one lovely green pepper for weeks and weeks. A few days before it was ready to be picked, we found the poor thing with a few chomps out of it and discarded on our back deck, covered in dirt. The squirrels had been at it! Being only ten years old, I cried for the loss of that pepper. Now I've learned to laugh about it, though I still feel your tomato pain ;)

So funny! We were fighting the same war this summer. (I'm pretty sure we lost.) Our gorgeous heirloom tomatoes made for some very plump and happy squirrels and chipmunks.
