The ideal tomato stake?
I'm looking for the ideal tomato stake--one that won't rot or break and can support a big tomato vine loaded with fruit. Ideally I'd like it ten feet long (two feet at least will go in the ground). I've tried 1 1/2" square cedars, without much success. They were bored out by insects, rotted by the rain and humidity (I live in Florida) and snapped by strong winds. Also I could never find one over eight feet long. I'm considering a thick rebar (would 1" be enough?) Any other ideas?
