Your ideas on tomato growing
[Return to Topics]

We are growing tomato's to sell on our small farm. We would like to know your ideas regarding the best way to stake up rows that are 100 feet in length.

Last year we used steel fence posts, it worked but we are looking for other ideas. Thanks for your input.

We plant ours on plastic and use wood stakes to stake them with 1 stake for every 2 plants, we tie 4 rows of twine.

Hey Mud! You got the name of someone I could buy a small quantity of drip line like you guys water tomatoes with? I'd like to get a couple thousand feet for next year's garden, and I can't seem to find a supplier around here.

I have bought from for several years. They seem to be helpful honest people with reasonable prices.
