Homemade Vegetable Plant Supports
With this simple vegetable gardening tip you can keep your vegetable plants from falling over and lying on the ground. Simply buy or scavenge for an old cattle panel. Use some lengths of rebar or T-posts and drive them into the garden bed or rows and attach the cattle panels with wire. This plant support works well for climbing plants such as cucumbers, melons and pole beans. You can also tie up your tomato plants to the cattle panel support. Cattle panels used as supports will last much longer than your typical store-bought trellis and tomato supports.
