It was a good idea at the time

By Penny Stine

My hubby built me some beautiful trellises, which I've blogged about and used for a couple of years. I string netting up on the trellises for plants to climb. 

 

I didn't anticipate this.

 

 

The Cherokee chocolate tomato plant on this particular trellis is so heavy it broke the netting. The tomato branches are all bent out of shape and the tomatoes are on the ground. frown

 

 

 

 

So I grabbed some handy string and tried to help. As you can see, I'm using a blue spruce tree to anchor the netting in place. I don't know how long it will work. I think I'll head out there with more twine and maybe some duct tape and see what else I can do!

Duct Tape will fix anything!
