This is my first post on the board so, maybe this has been discussed before. If so, please forgive me. I did search but could not come up with much of anything.
I used to just stake my tomatoes with a tomato stake for each plant and that worked okay for 40-50 plants but, now we are planting hundreds of plants for the CSA and staking and tying each plant seems a bit overwhelming. This is our third year as a CSA and the last couple years we didn't use any staking. That was less than satisfactory for us. What methods do you folks use for your tomatoes?
I am thinking about using 1inch by 1 inch by 8 foot long stakes every 5 or 10 foot and running a heavy line or cable through a hole near the top and then running tomato strings down from that to each plant. Similar to the way I have seen on the Johnny's select seed video. Has anyone used this method? Does it work? Is there a better option? Thanks.
