I have two gardens, one at home...and one at work. The soil at work isn't all that great (ph too high) but I'm trying to address that each year. Besides having the soil problems we also have some heavy winds too (which doesn't seem to help much)
Having a few strikes against us already...I would like to enjoy the fruit that we are getting...BUT SOMETHING IS EATING OUR TOMATOES!
I don't know what it is for sure. I haven't seen fruit eaten quite like this (I'll have to get a picture). Usually half of the fruit is eaten in what looks to be many channel type bites.
We have just about everything you can expect in northern Illinois. Rabbit, ground squirrels, coyote, plenty of birds (which include pheasant)...I've even seen a medium sized turtle climbing up the hill toward our garden. Recently someone mentioned that it may be pheasant. I haven't heard this before...but something is certainly enjoying them.
I plan to put some chicken wire around it...but would still like to know what it may be.
I'll get some pictures posted in the next couple of days.
