The Road to a Ripe Tomato

… the road to a ripe tomato is littered with frost and dead seedlings, weeds and munchy critters, and now finally this, a blushing tomato on the vine. Unlike previous years where I eschewed large tomatoes in favor of cherry tomatoes that put out vines every which way, we have several types of large tomatoes. The one above is an “Early Boy”, and grows on a compact plant.

These paw prints were taken by the cucumber plants, where the leaf ends were heavily munched on. Any expert trappers out there that can tell me what these are? I know there are rabbits and woodchucks, and I’ve seen coyote on the perimeters, could this be a coyote looking for its prey?
