Black Plum Tomato

I just thought I would share pictures of my Black Plum Tomato plant. It is growing at an amazing rate! The other plant under it is a hot banan pepper plant.

Looks good!

What are you using for the trellis wire? I tried something this year that absolutely did *not* work, so will want to try something completely different next season.

I need to develop something different as well. I used a tomato cage I purchased at Home Depot. It's good for tomato plants that don't grow very tall. This one started slumping over the end of it, so I had to use plant tie tape to tie the plants to the wooden fence behind it.

Next planting, I'm just going to dig some stakes into the ground about every 2 feet. I'll then plant tomato plants even in between each pair of stakes.. then tie plant tape or string from stake to stake to hold the plants up as they grow. I noticed that is more or less how it is done at the U-pick fields the other day. No cages there!
