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.
