I believe a bird is eating my almost ripe tomato plants and want to know how to keep them at bay.
In the evening, I am excited to note that I should be able to harvest beautiful tomatoes in the morning. However, when I come outside the tomatoes are eaten almost in half. They are in pots on a second floor balcony and the only thing I can think of is that the culprits are birds.
Is there something I can do to keep the offender away without harming the creature? Large chunks of the tomato meat are gone and although I'm happy to share my produce, I would like to enjoy some of the tomatoes, too and share with my human friends!
