Supporting Tomato Plants

Tomato plants are now in need of support.  We tried every logical way of providing the correct support for them, none seemed too successful.  In the end we resorted to constructing a frame work from cane on either side of the row of plants, which allowed the vines to rest over the horizontal canes leaving the fruit hanging nicely.  Real easy to arrange and lay the plant branches over the canes as they grow, even easier to harvest, and no damaging string tying the plant stems.

First we had to visit the local riverbed to harvest the canes.
