squirrel vegetable buffet

Hello, I attempted to grow a variety of vegetables, raspberries and strawberries this year. As each crop is just about to ripen, a horde of squirrels set in and devour them before I can get a chance to harvest it. I'm about ready to give up and plant flowers but thought I would ask to see if anyone has suggestions.

The only things that seem to survive are kale, broccoli, squash, and hot peppers. My raspberries did OK because they couldn't quite reach a lot of them and I built a mesh cage around the strawberries. They also didn't eat my lettuce but were determined to bury nuts in the soil around them and killed most of it in the process. Short of building cages around everything, are there any other fruits and vegetables I could consider?
