tomatoes and tips

A few days ago rhodielady_47 offered a tip to keep birds away from my tomato plants : hang red Xmas balls on the branches of the plants. The birds will find them inedible and will afterwards leave the "real" tomatoes alone.
So I decided to try it out :-)
I have no red plastic Xmas balls so I used little red plastic apples, and since one of the tomatoplants is supposed to produce yellow tomatoes I hung up a few bunches of golden plastic grapes for good measure.
I dont know if it is going to help, but the result is rather cheerful :-)

the red things are the plastic apples, not tomatoes ! The tomatoes are still very small and green.
