While I’m obsessing about tomatoes, I’m also wondering if anybody could share their ideas about staking their tomato plants. My plants always overwhelm the pre-fab tomato cages. I end up constructing all kinds of elaborate retrofits with twine and wooden stakes, but they still end up all toppled over toward the end of the season….

Just found your blog today. As a beginning gardner in Arden you have answered many questions for me. I Thank You!! About your tomatoes going wild, check out http://www.agardenforthehouse.com. He sets up a teepee like trellis that appears tp work well. As my tomatoes traveled all over this year, I’ll be implementing this come spring.
