Waiting for next year

By helenlinda
Yesterday I cut down my tomato plants in the greenhouse. They had finished except for a few green ones that will ripen indoors.
I tried a system of string rather than poles this year which has worked well. I had seen it used on a gardening programme. I wrapped the stem around the string which was supported by the metal on the highest window strip and secured it to the plant bottom - and then wrapped it round the stem as it grew.
Worked so well that I have kept the strings in place for next year - my little bit of re-cycling !!

Great focus, excellent description.

Long ago, when I had a garden and greenhouse, I used the same system.

Good to know you're recycling, Helen! 😃 A fine image, just goes to show what you can do with something as simple as string 👍
