Trellising Tomatoes with Branches

We have planted so many tomato plants this season that we have run out of t-posts to trellis with wire, string, and cages. Because of this, we have to get creative. On one patch of tomato plants, we decided to try propping the plants up off the ground with branches cut from the adjoining hedgerow of trees. This is an exciting experiment because it’s completely sustainable. We will watch this plot and see how it compares to the traditionally trellised tomatoes.
