Tomato Support

My dad made this tomato support from old fence boards. Super easy, and way stronger than those wire ones from the store. Better looking too!
Tomato Support
The legs are made from the two, 2×4 rails of one fence section.
  1. He cut each 2×4 in half making 4 pieces measuring 1.5” x 1.5” x 8’ (this made 4 legs)
  2. He cut the fence boards into .75” x 1.5” x 21” and then mitered the corners to 45 degrees.
  3. He screwed the .75” x 1.5” x 21” to the 4 pieces measuring 1.5” x 1.5” x 7’ (legs) using 1.5” deck screws.
  4. He spaced each horizontal section 18” apart.
  5. He painted the support with porch paint for color, filled a large tub with soil, placed the support over the tub and planted a tomato plant in it.
You should be able to plant runner beans or cucumbers in the bucket, training them up the four corner posts.
