Homemade Tomato Cage

homemade tomato cage

I’ve been working on building this tomato cage, but between this and everything else, my project is taking longer than expected. So, here’s what it looks like so far.

With store-bought cages going for around $3 a piece, making one myself was a no brainer. For the cost of a ball of twine (less than $3), I can make all of the cages I need. All I’ve done is chop 1″ thick branches from fallen trees, and tie them together with the twine, building them around the already tall plants.

I think it’s kinda cool, all rustic looking. And it’s doing a great job keeping the tomatoes growing upward. Much better than those flimsy, round cages at the hardware store!
