Some people collect stamps. Others collect rare coins. Some collect golf clubs, fishing poles or ex-spouses.
It would appear that I collect fence posts.
|At least this guy approves of my hobby.|
I decided I could use a different post.
He didn't move.
For the record, the tomato trellis has wooden posts on the ends. A double strand of heavy, orange poly-twine for the top "wire". T posts in the middle and it will get more stakes.
I estimate the height is about 54 inches.
I have miles and miles of lighter weight, orange poly-twine from feeding Sprite's calves on the property. I messed around with various ways of dropping lines from the top wire.
For those who use tomato clips, I plan to train the plants in a "V" with two legs. How many clips am I likely to need for each leg if the top of the support string is about 48" above the ground?
I see very clear differences in growth habits between the Stupice and the Polish Linguisa. The Stupice is more compact and the Linguisa is lankier. I also got a few plants that are clearly neither. People pull tags to read the fine print and then the plants, sans tags, go into the closest flat.

Who would name a heartnut after a hobbit?
|Lehman's Delight. The wire cage is around it because it is low enough for deer to browse.|
I don't have any heartnuts pushing yet but several new (for me) persimmons have. God willing, I added Rosseyanka, Journey, Lehman's Delight and Prok. Those scion have growing buds.
I am still waiting on Barbra's Blush and Dave's Candy Korn.
Hope springs eternal.
