Fake Fruit Tricks Birds

Just before your tomato plants start to grow tomatoes, hang round plastic, red coloured Christmas baubles on your plant. The birds will think the bulbs 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, but it really works!
