Another Tomato Cage Design

We started with those little wire cages from the store. But then the plants grew taller so we added the wide leaning wooden cage. Just recently we added the supports up high so the plant has something to lean on. This is our first Mortgage Lifter tomato. Looking forward to tasting these soon. Enjoy your garden!!


  1. Good for you. The design looks like it is working. I intended planting the mortgage buster but had too many plants already. I will enjoy seeing your results. Slice one and photograph it for us. Have a good Sunday.

  2. Def. one the most unique tomato cages I've seen. lol. Looks like you're going the "minimal pruning" route.......I did 50% no prune, 50% prune this past spring. I'm not sure I saw a big difference in the tomatoes themselves......but the plants that didn't get pruned were a pain in the butt!

  3. L.D. Thanks. Yea it is working great so far. We'll have to do a sliced tomato post. Still waiting to eat the first mortgage lifter.

    Dennis, We pruned more at the lower levels. Then also when the plants extend too far out in the yard they get wacked.

    Happy Gardening!! SG
