how does an engineer fix droopy tomatoes?

with zipties!

and nails. and stakes.

basically... my tomato cages kept falling over and the weight of tomatoes broke off quite a few branches.

sad tomatoes.

after several searches online about expensive expandable cages and trellises, i thought um i could totally build something better.

and well im not sure its better but my fix was definitely cheap and easy. i bought $.97 stakes, found my container of 600 zipties, and a box of outdoor wood nails. theyre not pretty, but so far, quite functional. buuut now i have a nasty blister...and unbroken tomato plants!
