Growing Tomatoes Vertically

Growing tomatoes with no tomato cages
My DH is growing tomatoes this year with no tomato cages. He's decided to plant the tomatoes and then weave the plants through the re-enforcement wire. You can see the plants just set out next to the wire.

In fact he is planning to grow a lot of vegetables this year and attaching them to the wire. He calls it vertical gardening. It saves space and just think how easy it will be to pick the green beans standing up!

He is planning on growing Crista, Early Girl, and Sweet 100 tomatoes, cucumbers, honeydew, muskmelon, green and yellow pole beans, and peas on the wire. Stay tuned for how he will hold up the melons..I want to see that for sure....

Beans just set out next to wire wall. Corn plants on the right of the picture.
