|I started my tomatoes with Wall-O-Waters, and everything was going nicely until this morning: I found all the Wall-O-Waters knocked over (with the tomatoes crushed underneath) and some had holes torn in them. At first I was baffled (no neighbors are angry at me - at least that I know of), and then it dawned on me: We're having a terrible spring drought in the Northeast, and thirsty raccoons most likely are the culprits (I feel kind of sorry for the poor things, despite what they did). My quesiton is: Does anyone make something similar to Wall-O-Waters that can be "sealed off", so none of the water is exposed? I've heard Kozy Coats are easier to fill than Wall-O-Waters, but the water is still exposed.|
|I am not familiar with a closed product. Instead of changing your procedures, perhaps you could simply provide some fresh water closer/more convenient to the raccoons and they (and a variety of other critters) would be happy to use that instead. |
Alternatively, since raccoons can carry disease and are likely to continue to be destructive to your garden, you might consider contacting animal control and/or fencing them out of your garden.
I'm sorry about your tomato plants!
