After a large wind storm this afternoon, I went outside to play with my kids. To my dismay, I found all my tomato plants had been flattened. I have never had this problem in the past and wonder if it was caused by the grow boxes we used for our tomatoes this year. The tomato cages weren't able to anchor themselves as deep as normal, and is it possible that the roots of the tomato plants can't dig as deep as well? Causing them to be flattened completely? Aghh...I just want to cry. 16 tomato plants flattened. I have done my best to get them back up, but some major damage has already been done.
Oh how I wish I had made Jennifer's Industrial Tomato Cages!!!
