Beautiful. Love all your ladybugs!

We used to live in Rowlett. It was that backyard garden that made me think "there's got to be a better way to do this."

Thanks for the complements!

Tracy, these are Ultomato cages I picked up at Home Depot. So far they have worked perfect. The plastic snaps are nice given you can pop one end of on the occasion that you need to adjust branches without the risk of breaking them.

Your garden is lovely! Shocked I've seen those tomato supports at HD, and though they appeared sturdy and all, they seemed pricy. Nice to see them in a garden; now I'm convinced they're worth the price since they'll last a long time.
