They keep eating my @#$#@# tomato plants! :waa:

What can I do to keep 'em from eating the plants, aside from building the space around the garden up like Fort Knox?

Are you sure it isn't a cutworm eating your mater plants? They can eat an awful lot in one night.
3 plants, 3 times in a row?

some people say strong horseradish spray and maybe egg spray works for deer . Pee and people and dog hair won't stop deer or antelope or bunnies. There is a thing you hook to a garden hose that will turn on with a motion detector and spray the critter when it gets near your plants.

When our garden was behind the barn, there was no way for us to keep the deer, raccoons, etc., away except this way:

My DH set up a post with a motion detector pointed in two directions. He next hooked up a bright light and a radio in a plastic bag. When the critters showed up, they got the stuffin's scared out of them!
