We grew beautiful tomatoes this year only to have them ruined by chipmunks. If anyone has any ideas for stopping this, please let me know. - Betty

One thing you could try is to set out some shallow pans of water for the chipmunks to drink. Sometimes when animals start eating our juicy veggies, it's to get the water content because they are thirsty, and not because they are hungry. It's certainly worth a try.

We had the same problem with squirrels this summer leaving us with maybe 2 tomatoes a week. I bought 2 sage plants and put them in the space between my plants. Guess what! We not only didn't have squirrel problems any more, but the bugs didn't like the sage either. This left us with more tomatoes than we could handle, so I tossed a few to the side for the squirrels.

This year the chipmunks are everywhere. They have gotten into my raised bed and are picking my cherry tomatoes. Any help is needed.

My problem is squirrels, but this will probably work on all manner of rodent. I sprinkle crushed or ground red pepper around the garden and trash cans. They hate it, apparently, I haven't had any problem. I don't sweat it too much, if I see a critter getting too close to the garden or after it rains I go do it again.
