Do you have any ideas on how to stop squirrels eating all the green tomatos off the vine?

Squirrels can be very hard to control but some gardeners report success using the repellant sprays such as GetAway (available from Burpee, 1-800-888-1447) or home-made garlic and/or pepper based sprays. Other gardeners find that a pet cat or dog can be helpful. In my experience, in hot dry weather they seem to be in search of water as much as food; sometimes setting out a pan of water (at some distance away from the garden) seems to help.
