I hate to jinx it, but I think I might slowly be gaining ground in my fight against the birds pecking at my tomatoes. I’ve only seen one bird in the netting since I put it up almost a week ago. I have seen birds on the backyard fence, and there are a few tomatoes near the area that’s easiest for them to get to, but they do appear to be leaving the others alone.
I’ve also added a few other preventive measures that I hope will help. I picked up a few cheap pinwheels at Hobby Lobby today, thinking the noise from them might scare the birds. Plus, one of my sisters recommended I try hanging a few pie tins. Hopefully, the glare and the noise will make the birds want to avoid the ‘maters.
