New tomato plants: new concept

A view from the porch.


A new set, six of them.., the new tomato plants to replace those just pulled out on the other vegetable bed. This plot is very close to the walkway, and a little bit to the right of the porch. I have prepared the cage months ago. Now it is placed right on the bed, protecting the tomato plant, giving it a room to grow and at the same time controlling the growth of marigolds nearby. The other 5 are not caged yet. They have to wait for their turn I guess, because my hands are tight and my time is limited.  Little flower buds are emerging already.

My little vegetable garden thrives 
within that constraints;  my hands and my time.

  4. I love youe tomato cage, Bangchik! I haven't decided yet what to use instead of my old tomato stakes and wire cages. I need something sturdy and not ugly at the same time.

  11. Thanks friends, bloggers and gardeners for your visits and comments.

    A stake will do to help tomato plant standing on its weak stem. But a cage provides an overall protection against running cat. I just put it on just for a change.

    I bought the wire mesh and tied it up myself. Its fun and push creativity to the test.

    Thanks,
    BANGCHIK
