Dateline: 23 August 2013
I've been heavily focused this week on making my first production run of clothespins (as explained HERE). If all goes well, I will have clothespins for sale by September first. Meanwhile, the tomatoes are ripening nicely. We are eating fresh tomatoes every day!
One of the garden projects I most enjoy each year is growing tomatoes on a tall T-post string trellis. If you have a copy of my Planet Whizbang Idea Book For Gardeners, you already know this. You also know how to make the trellis and train the tomatoes to grow on the strings.
The picture above shows a cluster of Juliet tomatoes that are on one T-post string trellis. Here's a larger view of the Tommy Toe string trellis...

That T-post trellis is 7' 6" high and 5' wide. It has three plants and they are trained on 9 strings. Click Here to learn how I make a tall, sturdy T-post string trellis.
