    Thanks for that. I think that is exactly what I need to do for my poor tomato plants. They never got supports, and the weeds have kept them fairly small.

    I'm excited for the opportunities that may provide. I hope to attempt that with determinate varieties. Will save my CP trellising for my indeterminates. But, just in the name of experimentation, may basket weave a couple indeterminates! I expect I'll need to use my T posts, and add some extensions on them to get the usable height up to 6'.

    Don't make them too tall, lol, you need to be able to pass over them to get the twine twisted tight around the pole to hold the plants up.
