I put cayenne pepper all around the tomato bed in hopes that it keeps the squirrels away or whatever else is eating the tomatoes. Maybe just maybe it will make their mouths burn enough that they want to stay away from the tomatoes.
Along the fence next to the bed.
All around the plants.
And even on some of the foliage and tomatoes that have been most tempting. I even sprinkled this one that was already chomped into in case they come back for another snack.
