Use Pipe Insulation to Protect a Tomato Vine

If your tomatoes grow up and over the tomato cage, sometimes the stem can get so heavy that it cuts the vine where it hits the top of the cage. A good solution to that is to cut lengths of pipe insulation to go around it. I am talking about the kind of insulation that has a slit in it. You just open the slit and insert over the tomato cage. It makes a soft, cushy, support for the plant.
