Tomato Thieves

We introduced a new species of tomato to the vegetable garden this year that has caused a crack like addiction in our resident Red Squirrel and Chipmunk. Here they are getting their sugar high on with our Sun Gold:











I read a number of articles on tomato thieves and it appears not much can be done to deter these deviant rodents once they have gotten a taste for these sugar laden treats. Okay, so admittedly they are adorable, but not only can consume masses of tomatoes in a single sitting, they are also making a huge mess, leaving tomato skins and partially eaten tomatoes all over the place!

No worries, they're planting next years crop. Spreading seed and saving your back. LOL, judy
