Garden: Place Fencing Between Tomatoes

This year we put a hog panel vertically down the center of our garden and planted tomatoes along each side. As the plants grew we stretched out coat hangers and slipped them over and attached them to the fence - nice because they can be repositioned easily and you can add as needed.


Now we have a wall of tomatoes which are easy to pick and hardly any blight because the rain doesn't hit right on the dirt since the tops of the plants make a kind of umbrella. We planted basil along the edges of the bed. This is very pretty to look at - seems like magic since the hog panel and coat hangers are completely covered.
