The Q&A Archives: keeping squirrels/chipmonks off tomatoes?

Question: How can I keep the squirrels and chipmonks from eatng my tomatoes. I have hardware cloth fencing around them but the still get in there and pick off ALL the tomatoes. I have 15 tomato plants and have yet to get ONE ripe tomato and it is the end of July. The buggers grab the tomatoes off the vine as soon as they are about golf ball size. I also have tried HOT pepper spray to no avail. HELP!!!
