String tomato trellis
The second project I'm
itching to try out this year is training tomatoes onto a string
trellis. As long-time readers know, fungi thrive in our wet
climate and we're always battling blight on tomatoes. We already stake carefully and prune heavily,
but Kimball's idea of separating out the three stems to each be
supported by one vertical line is a very good one. Since we have
some space below our new grape/kiwi trellis
this year, I'll try two or three tomatoes there using Kimball's string
method, and may also experiment with adding additional supports for my
other tomatoes so I can separate out their three stems more carefully as
well. (In the past, I've trained to three stems, but have tied
them all to one stake.)
