And the battle continues...

The war against the tomato marauder continues. So far, we've tried chicken wire, chicken wire+bird netting, and black pepper. I think that just caused the creature to look for some olive oil and balsamic vinegar to add to his salad. We tried chicken wire on the bottom and bird netting on top in case it was a raccoon or a large opossum.
We tried bird netting around the chicken wire, in case it was something small (and disgusting) like a rat. The hope was it would get tangled in the bird netting. That didn't work either.

Good luck with the fight. We've been battling the past few years with the deer. One year, we didn't get a single tomato.
