Re: QUESTION: Help! Birds are eating my tomatoes

Mockingbirds!! They love tomatoes. I even covered my tomatoes with small netting all the way to the ground and put rocks on the edges around the bottom. They found one small opening and squeezed under, hit each ripe tomato once or twice and I saw him (her) come back out and fly away. I love to watch the little thieves, so I started leaving one or two tomatoes uncovered just for the birds. Since doing that I have had very few damaged tomatoes on my plants. We both get our tomatoes!

Re: How to Start a Worm Farm

woxall; I have wanted to start a worm bed before but was unsure what to do in the winter. I live in zone 6 (eastern Tenn.). Will they survive in an unheated garage. Do they continue to "eat" in winter or do they hibernate?
Thanks for any help.
