A few of the tomato plant root balls are near the middle of the box so there is a little room to put a few things. Today I transplanted a few basil and 1 calendula into the middle.

CC how do you trellis or stake your indeterminate tomatoes now?

I mostly use Mels trellis which holds up in anything nature can toss at us.
 new    improved - My Garden: New and Improved - Page 2 3868 
But this year I put the overflow plants into the old school SFG and elsewhere and am using large tomato cages and bamboo stakes. They'll go down with the wind, unless I tie them to the rhodie bush behind them which was the original plan. Others I've left to sprawl. It's an experiment.[/quote]

Alright CC, Here's a video just for you. The stupid thing uploaded to the wrong account.  Dumb phone. I cannot figure out how to move it to my other channel. It took forever to upload so if anyone out there is a youtube guru and can help me so I don't have to re upload it, please speak up. Thanks

Excellent explanation! and your video came out great, Camp. I didn't know about weaving one of the side branches so as to stabilized the plant against the wind. Thank you so much!

Now how about a video of the first trellis you wove earlier that isn't for tomatoes, the one you said that you saw it done and taught yourself how to do it?
 Very Happy 
But I think that one would be impossible to do with one hand.

I'll work on that. Gotta figure out how to place the camera so I can us two hands to weave the trellis web.

Thanks. As usual I waited too long to nip the top. Hopefully the weather will be good enough to have these babies keep growing until at least Thanksgiving. I bet yours will make it! Very Happy
