Birds have decided to help themselves to my tomatoes.
Just because we still have a basketful of tomatoes in the kitchen does not mean that I should stop harvesting them. Some of my garden friends - the birds, are more than willing to help themselves to the fruits as soon as they see the color turns appetizing.
Birds like to eat the fruits on the upper portion of the tomato plant.
I would have preferred that they eat from the cherry tomatoes. Since they don't eat much, the marble-sized tomato would be a perfect portion for one meal. But no! The bigger fruits provide them a place to brace up as they savor the delicious fruits of the garden. Well, I don't blame them; in fact I need to be generous. After all they are my partners when it comes to attacking our pesky enemies. These are the same birds that helped me get rid of the tomato caterpillars from my plants when I was busy doing other things. If you have not watched a Blue Jay kill a huge caterpillar by hitting it against a rock, then you have not seen much! :)
