Then we started noticing that ripe tomatoes seemed to disappear. We were never sure as, for a time, there were so many ripe tomatoes. My spouse would guess that maybe she picked them the day before for a salad, etc.
Finally, a neighbor confirmed it. She said she saw a woman picking our tomatoes, get back on her bicycle, and ride away. She yelled at the woman, but she was too far away. The thought of it is quite frustrating.
I know that this issue isn't all that important. But I wonder how many people have this kind of experience, whether it is with vegetables, or roses, or other growing things in the front yard?
And do the people picking the tomatoes (or roses, etc.) without permission understand that they are thieves?
