Supporting My Tomato Plants

If you’ve ever grown a vining plant, you know how important it is to provide strong structures to which the vines can cling and climb. Staking various vegetables is necessary to keep fruits off the ground and to reduce the risk of disease and rot.

Every year, we stake all my eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes. This season, we decided to use old metal deer fencing uprights and netting - it's faster to put up and repurposes unused materials we already had here at the farm.
