Yesterday we trellised the unruly tomatoes. They probably should have been staked a week ago, but oh well, life is what happens when you’re making other plans.
I pruned the lower branches off and used strips of discarded t-shirts to tie them to the fence, wrapping the t-shirt around the stem and handing it to Dan on the other side of the fence to tie.
Trellising the tomatoes will improve air circulation to prevent disease, and will free up space for the row of peppers planting in front of them. We went from unruly mess to tidy row and happy peppers, and in the process, discovered our first green tomato!
I believe this is from the Cosmonaut Volkov. I can hardly wait!
