Supporting My Growing 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. Using tall bamboo stakes and strong netting is an easy way to support these plants in the garden bed.

At my Bedford, New York farm, I use eight foot tall bamboo stakes to support my growing tomato plants. Bamboo is attractive, easy to find, and can be reused year after year. This week, my outdoor grounds crew foreman, Chhiring Sherpa, worked hard to stake our fast growing tomato crops.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
