I’ve been working on building this tomato cage, but between this and everything else, my project is taking longer than expected. So, here’s what it looks like so far.
With store-bought cages going for around $3 a piece, making one myself was a no brainer. For the cost of a ball of twine (less than $3), I can make all of the cages I need. All I’ve done is chop 1″ thick branches from fallen trees, and tie them together with the twine, building them around the already tall plants.
I think it’s kinda cool, all rustic looking. And it’s doing a great job keeping the tomatoes growing upward. Much better than those flimsy, round cages at the hardware store!
