With all this rain, my tomatoes have taken off like crazy. Here are some pics. Should have some maters in no time.

Of course too much rain is not always a good thing for maters. More so when the have already bloomed though. I would also suggest some larger cages. We started using standard Field Fence formed into a cage for our maters. I drive a wood stake into the ground and tie them to cage to secure them so they won't fall over.
I still have a Winter source producing maters, but its on its last legs. Waiting for the Spring planting which are just starting to bloom.

Good idea Flash on the cage. Need to try that. Probably went a little small on the cages. Had to stake them today. they are growing so much, the cage can't hold them in. Best tomatoes yet for me.

Here is my current setup. The wind just wrecked havoc on those standard tomato cages.

Wow, you guys have me so jealous.
My tomatoes want nothing more than to get in the ground but I have another week or so and one final tilling to do.
Can't wait though, Jersey tomato straight off the vine with a little salt...better than sex!

I went to concrete re-inforcing wire.4 feet tall and make as round as you need.I would give you a few, but pretty far away.I have some well over twenty years old in perfect shape.I just cut bottom ring off and jam the 6 inch spikes in ground.

Thanks for sharing those nice pics. It must be nice to have room to spread things around. Looks like you'll have a good summer my friend.
