Cherries are really starting to come into their own... but those big ones don't even have a hint of red....
(Stomping my feet.... I don't wan't to wait, I want them NOW)
Sigh.... this is sort of like being pregnant...

They also ate some of my dwarf sunflowers, but that could've been the squirrels.
This means they've come right up into the yard rather than out in the field. They recently lost acres and acres of habitat just down the street, they are putting up a new subdivision and ripped out some woods that have been there forever It's only 1/8th mile down the street, so I think this may have something to do with their new found bravery, or should I say desperation.
I just don't want my plants totally destroyed. Do you think they'll eat the older growth? Or, the tomatoes?

We have tons of big green cherries and big green romas and big green big ones (I don't remember the kind! : ) Anyhow...the cherries and romas and beginning to turn red one at a time. However, the big ones are rotting on the vine! The few that have turned mush in my hand when I pick them. Others are bruised and rotting. Some aren't red yet and doing that! Any ideas, suggestions, etc?
