Bexley Farmers' Market: June 18th

"Tomato beds have an unfair reputation as the messiest, ugliest, most disease-ridden parts of a vegetable garden. To keep them from devolving to this sorry state, tomato plants need your care and support. More specifically, they need the support of a trellis, stake or cage, and they need you to train them to grow on it while primping and pruning their vines into a respectable form. If you do, the plants will be healthier and more productive—and more presentable when you’re showing off your garden to visitors."

Staking, Training, and Pruning

This week we are providing some tips on staking, training, and pruning your crop of tomatoes! 

Modern Farmer's Brian Barth, explains this crucial step in the tomato growing process. Having staked, trained, and properly pruned tomato plants will help produce the best quality tomatoes!

Throughout the article, read tips on:
  • Support Structures, including:  store-bought and homemade wire cages; stakes; and trellises
