Great photos...great info.!!
Thanks as always.
This should be stressed again. The tomato plant will make more roots from the buried portion of the stem and be able to absorb more nutrients from the soil, resulting in larger and more abundant crop yields, and be better able to withstand dry periods and wind..............
Please add me to your ping list. Thanks!
Thanks, and you’re welcome! It is such a pleasure sharing info.
Terrific! Thank You!
Is that rebar you’re using to stake your tomatoes?
Thanks for another idea or two we can rip off...now to track down some rebar.
About how many quarts do you put up with 100 plants?
Last year I had 160 or so plants, and I put up hundreds of jars of tomato sauce, green tomato relish, spiced tomato jam, etc. We also love fried green tomatoes.
That is amazing!
I use the rebar for my peppers too. With our loooong growing season, many of my peppers reach 5-6' tall.
Great looking garden - thanks for the info
I only had 6 tomato plants last year and I scrounged up 6 cages that my mom wasn’t using. My plants grew ‘great guns’ and ended up collapsing the cages .... quite a mess! I laughed when I saw the rebar .... hadn’t thought about using something like that, but for sure, it won’t bend or break!!
One more question .... what do you use to tie the tomato plants to the rebar?
