I used to have two big tomatoes, and numerous tiny tomatoes. Let us focus on the big ones.
This photo is from two weeks ago. When I moved last week, they were reddening. And Tuesday, I found them mostly gone.
I say mostly, because on the patio a few feet away, the perps had left this grisly scene:
The GF speculated deer, and the housemates testified that squirrels had been stealing things from the plants. These tomatoes would have required two body-building squirrels, at least, and our yard is fenced and nowhere near any deer habitats.
Any ideas on what the culprit might be, or, more importantly, how to keep them away from my tomatoes in the future?
