The Birds?

Or the squirrels, that is the question. Here is tomato victim number 2:
So I have not had one of my pink heirloom tomatoes yet! I, who turned her nose at cds and other such scare tactics, tried netting over the weekend, as I was worried the raccoon family might attack the garden (luckily they seem content to gorge themselves in the apple tree). The huge netting was a joke:

So, I repurposed a hanging fruit basket contraption, to limited success. My orange cherry tomatoes have not been touched (luckily because they are sweet and delicious) but I'd really like to have slicers too. I'm going to try a bird bath, as whether it is birds or squirrels, they are supposedly after water.
