I staked my tomato plants

Filed under:General — eric @ 1:14 am

I staked my tomato plants this weekend. And by “staked”, I mean “trussed like a roasting turkey”. I planted the things (six plants each of four varieties: cherry, roma, yellow, and an heirloom Amish red) backin April along a fence with the plan to later put in supports. I never got around to it, and by now the plants have gotten huge. Full of fruit in varying degrees of ripeness. Sprawling over six feet from the fence in some places. So, I used cotton twine, a lot of twine, to truss up support nets to hold the plants against the fence. It’ll make harvesting much easier and hopefully keep many pests away.
