You might want to put netting (like they use to keep birds off of grape arbors) over the tops of the beds at least while the plants are young.
Squirrels like to take one bite out of every green tomato on the vines, too.
I feed them corn under a big tree in the front yard. Aside from an occassional foray to sample the green tomatoes just to make sure they still don't like them well enough to eat a whole one, they've pretty much left my veggies & herbs alone.
On the other hand, there are some very ingenious bunnies around my place who sometimes manage to make it under the chicken wire and through the fence to chew on things. That's pretty rare, too, though. Evidently it takes much less effort for them to gnaw on my hostas and daisies.
Won't I look good in my publicity photos when I am the leanest, meanest, most agile writing machine I can possibly be?
