Yesterday, I installed a trellis for the pea plants and a cage for Mr. Glacier tomato plant. Both had started to sprawl on the ground, which I hear is bad for the tomatoes, at least, since various bugs get easier access to the fruit. Plus, the pea-trellis is decorative!
Installing the tomato cage was a bit difficult. I suspect that you’re supposed to put the cage in while the plant is still fairly small. The branches of the plant are pretty weak and easily bruised or bent, and I knocked one of my tomatoes off. (Now I need to find something you can do with a green tomato. I’m sure there’s something!) But overall, I think it’s an improvement. For pre- and post-cage tomato shots, see the most recent photos here.
