Tomato Cages..

We did a major switch in our garden thinking today, while we are still planting seed and will be till first of aug, but today.. o today we did the planting switch to the cleanup an moving forward, we took out wheel barrels full of fodder, aka weeds or wild edibles..

But more important, we started putting up the tomato cages, we are playing with heights, the smallest is three feet and tallest is sit feet, but the average is 4 or 5 feet in height, but all of them have at least  foot in the ground..

We will get the rest done this week, while most are around three feet already but some like this big baby is already four feet almost..

We are leaning towards the 3 post way but it not the only one, there is the odd row of three that we did as a unit.

I am not sure this on will work as well but I am always game to try it different and see so we also have a more narrow but very tall two stake on done..

I am growing some sauce tomatoes that are to produce some that are a pound each so we might doing overkill or not..

Once these 70 tomato plants are done, just 58 pepper plants to do next 🙂

    They look nice and sturdy; great job! While shaking my head in amazement…
    Overkill? Probably not; )
    One thought though… Will the twine tighten enough as the weight increases on the string to stay in place?
