Staking Tomato Plants

We reached another milestone with our tomato seedlings- time to stake them to offer support.  Why? As they grow taller, they start to lean and can fall sideways, breaking the stem or leaves.  We used bamboo skewers and a bit of twine to support them. Be sure to not tie the twine too tightly- the stems will grow larger as the plant grows. 

I have to give a shout-out to Annapolis Seeds. The plants grown from their heirloom seeds are outgrowing the other heirloom seeds I have from other seed companies. They are going to be beauties in the garden beds!
