Are there any flowers that I can plant in a big pot with my vegetables that will keep squirrels and other animals from eating my them?

Unfortunately I am not aware of a plant that would keep squirrels away specifically. You might try using a pepper wax spray or one of the spray-on repellents labeled for squirrels or rodents or deer or whichever the animal is. Read and follow the label directions for applying and reapply as directed as well. If it is in a container, you might be able to cage the plant to protect it.
