Anyone who has grown great tomatoes (or even not-so-great) can attest to the fact that staking them properly is a challenge. I've found no commercially-made tomato cage that can hold a 10 foot plant. And yes, my tomatoes regularly get above and beyond 10 feet.
This Love Apple Farm workshop shows you how to make and use what I call "proper" tomato cages. These babies are 7 feet tall and two feet wide.
You may take the class and learn how to do it yourself, which is $20 per person. Most folks, however, want to take advantage of my discount price that day, and take home the tomato cages we make during class.
I usually charge $15 each for these mondo cages, which will last for decades. But for one day only, class day, people can make and take the cages for $12 each. We all help in the cage-making that day. I require advance notice of how many cages you'd like to help make and buy.
You need not buy any cages to attend the class. Regardless, you'll need to register in advance by clicking the "Pay Now" button below. If you'd like to take away cages, let me know a week before the workshop by emailing me the number of cages. You can pay for your cages "at the door."
ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED
