I had a horrible garden summer last year with the rats and squirrels stealing the tomatoes and carrots in my garden.  I was thinking about the electric netting to keep them out.  Any suggestions or comments

So, what I have to do is pull the tomatoes when they are not fully ripe. Apparently "it" doesn't like to bite into the hard surface of the tomato until it is fully ripe.
