Fake "Fruit" Tricks Birds

Just before your tomato plants start to grow ripe tomatoes, hang round plastic, red coloured Christmas baubles through the tomato bushes.

The birds will think the baubles are tomatoes, peck at them, and become unhappy when they don't get anything to eat. They then leave the plant alone and you get to harvest a bountiful crop of lovely, fresh, whole tomatoes.

It sounds absurd, and your neighbours may think you've flipped your lid, but it really works!
