As a dedicated sucker plucker, I like to grow my tomato plants tall. The flimsy little tomato cages you get at the garden center have never appealed to me and staking them just seems too much work. So I use concrete reinforcing welded mesh to create cages. I can't claim the idea, as I saw it somewhere ages ago.
The nice thing about the wire is that it's tall and sturdy, and has big enough holes to easily reach in and pull out the tomatos.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Heavy duty wire cutters. These are actually 8" bolt cutters from harbor freight.
A nice big roll of welded wire mesh from your local hardware store.
