    Tomato cages,bamboo stakes

  • My Dad always made cages out of chicken wire. His would grow to 8 feet tall! he's cut holes here and there so your hand could reach in, folding the little wires back so you wouldn't get scratched, so you could pick the tomatoes.

    We started with tomato cages, the round ones. When the tomato plants started tipping over from too much height, we put metal rods in the corners of the tomato bed and used wire or thin rope to weave between the rods and the tomatoes. You will have to check your tomato plants (from the beginning) to be sure the branches are going up and over the top of the supports and not into the ground

    If you are raising rows the easiest way is to use tobacco sticks every 8 to 10 plants. Tamped in at least 8" . And a piece of half inch plastic pipe approximately 5 feet long with a quarter inch hole drilled two inches from the end. And a roll of bailing twine. Take the twine from the middle of the rool and feed it down from the pipe and out through the drilled hole . Then tie it off to the tobacco stick and lace it back and forth between the plants under the limbs till you you get to the next tobacco stick continue on or go back to the other stick weaving on the opposite side of the plants . Put a bag over the twine and wait till more limbs grow. I leave mine outside till the end of the season. With the pipe you only have to bend over once to string all season.
