tomatoes got laid over.

Had a storm blow my tomatoes over, they were loaded with fruit. Did the Florida weave but used wood stakes instead of metal, but the stakes couldn't Handel the weight. Replaced the wood stakes with metal t post and stood them all back up. Lesson learned. And the metal t post will last years to come. I'm sure they'll be ok.

Aww fingers crossed they will be salvaged. They look healthy.

I went through a series of stakes that ultimately led me to metal t-posts also. You won't regret it! And thanks to the notches, they really are the best for Florida weave.
