This is just a quick tip for you tomato-lovers out there. Your plants are probably getting pretty big (knock on wood) and you probably wish you don’t have to go to the trouble of staking them in some way. Really, it’s a lot of work to stake them and then you have a bigger clean-up situation as you prepare for your winter garden.
Mom gives you one very good reason to bother in the video above and it centers around pest management. Her point about tomato decomposition is very interesting as well.
Go forth and stake your tomatoes.
