We have always staked out tomatoes but I am sure some wonder why so here are a few reasons why we do.....
1. Fruit is cleaner...keeping fruit off the ground.
2. Slugs love tomatoes. (keeping tomatoes off the ground keeps slugs from eating your tomatoes)
3. Keeps garden tidy
4. We think we get more tomatoes (we don't prune our tomatoes)
5. You don't have to bend over as much...which wastes time.
