Started building trellises for my tomatoes yesterday evening. Bamboo is so much more aesthetically pleasing (and cheaper!) than those janky wire cages. I used 4 six foot stakes on each, setting them into the beds maybe 8-10″ deep and then wire-tying them into tipis at the top. I plan on adding cross supports as the plants grow up to stabilize and straighten their stalks so they are tall, big and strong this year, instead of completely unruly like last year’s bunch!
