Squirrels are eating my tomatoes - Knowledgebase Question

I have tomato plants in a container on my deck, and all my tomatoes are disappearing. I found a half eaten one on the railing yesterday - I'm positive it's the squirrels. How do I deter them?

Squirrels are difficult to deter so your best approach is to place a barrier around your tomato plants. Make cylinders out of chicken wire to enclose your plants. It won't look very nice but at least it will protect your tomatoes so you can enjoy eating them!
