DIY Tomato Cages

What type of item is this? Functional How would you describe the style of your project? Outdoorsy How would you describe the style of your project? Eco-Friendly What are you most proud of? We've been using these cages for 3 years now and they are still in great shape. They are so much taller than standard tomato cages that they can also double as vertical supports for pole beans, cucumbers or peas. They are also great supports to reign in wandering tomatillo plants. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Wear gloves and watch out for sharp edges! This is a super easy project - have fun and enjoy your tomato crop!
