Last year Hannah posted a video showing how she strung up her tomatoes rather than staking them and I thought it was a great idea. Since mine are planted in raised beds this year, I thought I'd give it a shot.
First I took these big metal whatchamacallits that I found in my basement and nailed them to the corners of the raised beds.
Then I tied a stick to the top connecting the two whatchamacallits. I put one nail directly in front of each tomato plant to attach the string. After I placed the string in the proper locations and tied them to the nails, I pulled the tomato plants up and tied them to the string.
Do you have a creative way to stake tomatoes? Be sure to tell me about it so I can put it on my list to try next year.
