I could just cry this morning. I cover up my tomatoes last night with some old shirts as the weather called for frost. When I went to take them off this morning, the edge of one was brushed aside and one of my tomatoe plants was GONE!!!! Just a poor stem left. What could have done this? The bed is raised. Could it have been a bird? Do magpies do things like that? I did previously find 2 strawberry plants dug out and my lavender seeding almost naked, they survived. I am so sad, this is my first SFG and I only had 6 tomato plants. I covered the strawberries with a wire frame. Do I have to do that for my other 3 boxes too? My husband will not be amused. Is there any other way to deter birds if you experts think thats what it is. Will the tomato grow back from just a stem, no leaves?
