Bird Scare CD's

I'm getting so many tomatoes, I decided I'd better put my bird scare program into effect. ;)

From my internet research, there's several things that should work... flaps of fabric to blow in the breeze, glittery things like cd's, noisy things like piepans and windchimes, predator-looking things like fake owls or snakes. But the key, it seems, is to keep rotating the things, so the birds don't get complacent, like the birds you see that sit on the scarecrow's outstretched arms. So here's part one of my bird scare - a length of old peach polyester cloth and some old freebie cd's. Looks like a carnival, doesn't it?


And here's one of the new clusters on my Cherry tomato plant:


And (as if you haven't seen enough) ... ONE more:

That's a great idea. Got any ideas to scare deer away from my green beans?

Wow! I would definitely be scared if I was a bird and saw that contraption! I hope it works.

Those little cherry tomatoes will take over! At least they did for me. Yours look so healthy and good!

Oh, now that's funny! I can hear the circus music. LOL Your tomatoes look lovely. My plants are still teeny tiny. I hope they "do something" soon. :)
