Florida weave This staking option works well when growing many tomato plants. Twine is woven around wooden stakes to support unpruned plants as they grow. Steel T-posts at the ends of the row hold the temporary structure in place.
I like this trellis idea for melons or pumpkins - Ideas for supporting tomato plants. A whole row for tomatoes, cukes, etc. planted on the far side, and shade tolerant lettuces, radishes and beets underneath.
Just did this last night.Stake and prune your tomatoes for best results. Green shoots, called suckers, appear wherever a leaf meets the single stem of a tomato plant. Lopping the overgrown sucker off keeps the plant neat and uncongested.
