Wife, Mummy, Nurse: I need some HELP and ADVICE with my tomato plants

I need some HELP and ADVICE with my tomato plants

This summer I decided to plant a small balcony container garden.  I planted one Roma tomato plant and one Beefsteak tomato plant.  After getting back from Pennsylvania, I asked my husband if he remembered to water the plants and if they were looking good.  He replied, "Yes, I watered them, but there are a few tomatoes that look like something ate half of them."  So, I went outside to investigate.  Sure enough, he was right.  This was the case only with the Beefsteak tomatoes.  I then went to get my camera and take a few pictures.  Then, I picked the tomatoes that have bites in them off.  Just now, I saw a bird right next to MY tomato plant.  So, now I'm wondering if he is the culprit.

So here's where you come in: I want this fixed, but I'm not sure what to do.  What have you done to prevent birds and other small creatures from getting to your various plants?  Comments (or an e-mail) would be appreciated.

For those who are wondering, the other plants-oregano, basil, and pepper plant-seem to be doing well.

  1. i'm not an expert but i found that creatures were eating the red ones so i started picking a little early. then let them ripen inside.
