if it is undone, it's humans or a bloody clever squirrel .
Next step
make a notice saying caution all tomatoes in this have been sprayed with a toxic pest killer " Killoffif " , if consumed seek urgent medical aid
If no more toms go missing it is a literate human thief
LOL - that may have worked pre-internet. Now, they'd search for "Kill-off-if", and
on not finding any such thing, would be back prolly. - Human-thieves are too sophisticated. Gotta come up with something fool-proof Rolling Eyes like what? tongue

How about a simple sign that reads: Please don't take our tomatoes. We have a wonderful garden and I am happy to help you establish and grow your own.

Its a small guilt trip that will stick with them.

I'm amused that this thread has made a reappearance after several months. Smile My problem appears to have gone away. This year, I planted the Moretons a bit farther into my yard so they're not right next to the street. In addition, I've planted several odd varieties (Black Krim, Green, Jersey Devil, Sungold) that don't look like supermarket tomatoes when ripe. So far I haven't lost anything this year. Very Happy
