Or maybe I always get carried away. Depends on how you look at really.

I got a little carried away when I saw 5000m of hop twine and thought, "I could do with some string for the garden."

I got a little carried away when I thought, "I could use that twine to support the tomatoes this year."

I got really carried away when I actually made the structure from bamboo! I swear it looked a lot smaller when it was laid on the ground.

This is the structure for our indeterminate tomatoes. I'm planning on 2-3 leaders per plant growing up the strings. This is the first year I'm using string to grow up and so far I'm loving it. For the cucumbers in the greenhouse, I've just been winding them around as the grow and it is working a treat.
