I posted them over at the Exchanges page if any of you locally have an interest.
These are heavy gauge tomato cages, not cheap. I hate to send them to the recycling center but if there is no interest by next Saturday that is where they will go....
Tom, those are some nice tomato cages! I am sure somebody will be happy to have them.
I may be interested depending on your location.... Where in Florida are you? I'm on Merritt Island.
Tom, I don't know what size cages you have, but one more consideration before you get rid of them is if you have any interest in epiphyllum (orchid cactus). Tomato cages can be used to pot them up in a nice trellis. See link below for the how-tos (and other videos by the same YouTube poster, if you like epiphyllum). I used my tomato cages for one season for tomatoes... and then reused them for epis after watching this video. :)

Well see Silvia
FOD, guess when I added "Sunset 26" I lost St Pete in my header...back to St Pete Z10, Heat 10 - no Sunset 26. Even at $16 per double cage I doubt you'll want to make the trip over here for $320 worth of cages.
...and then reused them for epis after watching this video
Carol, these are 3/16" wire, much too heavy to bend that easily....
Tom, mine were the really heavy gauge, too. I had to use two pair of pliers - one in each hand - to make the necessary bends. It's not so much the size of the wire as the overall size of the tomato cage that determines if you think you can use them for epi's.
Thanks Carol, I'll save a few.
Tom- I have gone through the exchanges pages and I can't find your post. :-( Did you find a home for them?
What are you looking for in exchange for them?
Hi Barbie - It's the very first post on the Florida Exchange page - I've linked it below.

Ah, so looking on the main forum and through those exchange posts wouldn't have brought me to it, anyway. It's linked up top on the Florida forum... Geez Think I could have figured that out. LOL.
I think these are too tall for me. Anything over the fence gets reported. :-(
They are bolted together with wire rope nuts, the nuts can be unscrewed or just cut off with bolt cutters to revert back to standard tomato cages.
