keeping animals away from vegetables

keeping animals away from vegetables

we're going to be growing tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers this year, but we share our backyard with a family of groundhogs. i've also seen rabbits and various neighborhood cats visiting the yard. what's the best way to keep our veggies from being eaten/messed with by animals? i'm not sure a raised garden would help much. thanks for any advice!
