Since it is a relevant time of the year I will continue the revival of the Zombie thread.

We make our own cages out of old pieces of pig wire. What this means is if you are late in getting a cage in you can simply wrap it around the plant and secure it. You can also make it any size, it will stand up on it's own and you can easily reuse it year after year. It is also cheaper than buying a tomato cage.
These days of dust
Which we've known
Will blow away with this new Son

But I'll kneel down wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground

We also have made our own cages . Just like these. Image

I used scrap one inch boards cut into strips and used sisal twine to tie top and wrapped down the sides to create the cage.
As of now I bet you got me wrong

John Titor was right
