Something is getting to my tomatoes. I'm so pissed I can't see straight. It was the same thing last year. I lost at least two dozen tomatoes to this mystery varmit. Now it's starting again this year. I threw up netting on Sunday, when the first two tomatoes were chewed, half eaten and then discarded, but today, this afternoon, there was another green tomato pulled off of the vine, lying on the ground, just nibbled at. All of my hard work and they don't eat even half of it. They just nibble at it, leaving most of it there.
Is it squirrels? What's getting passed the netting? What can I do now? Red pepper? Garlic? Marigolds? I understand that they shy away from a human scent. Maybe I'll go out one night and pee around the tomato barrel. Think that might help?
