New Support Idea for Tomatoes

Long time no post here, there, anywhere!

A friend of mine said he saw a gardening show on TV where they showed a man in France using old Bra's to support his tomatoes!

Don't know if this is true or not, but it sure sounds as if it would work.

Okay guys - let the bragging begin!

Cheers to all,

I believe permanent staking is the Way to go, it works for me.

RE: New Support Idea for Tomatoes

Hi Mickey! I haven't been around much either. Garden he*! doen't sound like much fun. Glad you busted outta that joint! Bras huh? would probably work, especially the underwire types.

I used to work at a fine retail establishment in the clothing section and we had a couple lines of bras that went to a size 50 C Or D if I recall. Probably could use them for melon slings. I wouldn't wish that much chest on my worst enemy. (Grin.)


RE: New Support Idea for Tomatoes

Personally, I think it's a bad idea.

A bra cup would allow critters to hide themselves while working away on the tomato.

I fail to see a single merit in this proposal. If someone does feel it worthy of consideration, then please........ give it a try and post your results.
