The Q&A Archives: Tomato Loving Mockingbirds

Question: I love our state bird, but enough! The mockingbirds have enjoyed my tomatoes tremendously this year, and nothing I have done to protect my produce has been successful. Any suggestions?

Answer: I'm afraid your only option is to cage them in - and the birds out. Use cylinders made of chicken wire or hardware cloth, anchor them down well and cover the top. Be sure to keep the wire several inches away from the plants so the birds can't reach the fruit. Good luck with your tomatoes!
