The Mystery of Vanishing Tomatoes

My tomatoes have been vanishing. This is all I have been able to bring into the house this summer. A few of the nearly ripe ones usually have teeth marks or are found feet away from the vines half eaten. Then the green tomatoes started to disappear. I was baffled what could be eating my tomatoes.

This past weekend I watched a squirrel run up the fence, pick out a beautiful green tomato and run off with it. Those critters just went from cute fuzzy critters to dog food. I didn’t know they ate tomatoes until I saw it. I thought it was mice. We found 2 dead in the yard, one of which was in the garden.

Does anyone know any way of keeping squirrels from tomatoes or the garden in general?
