Here's a trick I tried today that I thought I'd pass on.
I have some cherry tomato plants that are now producing fruit that isn't quite ready to be picked. I forget the name of the strain of plant, but they grow low to the ground. I'm out of string and was looking for another way to prop them up so they don't sag to the ground.
I took some plastic forks and removed the middle two tines, and presto! Plant prop. They're a little too short to reach some of the branches, but I attached a couple of them to the tops of small over-turned planters and they worked perfectly :)
