Time for Tomato Cages

My container tomato plants are tall enough now that they need some support. I wanted to build a support system that would be usable for all of my plant containers.

I bought “hog panels” at the Tractor Supply Store and some inexpensive aluminum conduit to build the support system.

I measured and cut them all prior to assembling them.

I assembled them with small hose clamps to allow me to adjust the height as needed.

Here, you can see how the height is adjustable for the cucumber plants.

This approach also worked well to support the tomato plants. In the past, with a raised bed garden, I simply used a wire cage but since this is on my deck and visible every day, I wanted something a bit more sturdy and attractive.
