Yesterday I had a wonderful crop of tumbling toms just come ripe. I went out this morning to pick some and every ripe or nearly ripe one has vanished. What do you think? Squirrels? They have been trying to dig up bulbs and uprooted a cape daisy over the last few days

I was just out weeding and I've dug up a load of bright orange ants. Are they harmful to plants?
