My Kind of Tomato tower

Last year, Hubby and I bought really cool towers for our tomatoes, well, for two at least....
Here is one of them from last year. They are quite sturdy. And, we wanted more. We went to the store and they didn't have them, and actually didn't know what we were talking about!
So, we decided to create our own.....




So, here it is in place. Where is the tomato? Well, this one is for my king beans!
And yes, you did see...we made the cross pieces with rulers! Actually, yardsticks....and some stir sticks! They were cheap and accessible...so, Hubby cut them and attached them...it works.....
Also,  the neighbor give us a bunch of pots.....

Isn't that awesome?? So nice of him....
Hope you had a great day in the sun....

Those are GREAT tomato (or bean) stands! And that was great of the neighbor to give you all those pots- xo Diana

What a great idea using the rulers as cross pieces. It would make an original Obelisk feature with a pretty climber such as 'Black eyed Susie' I love the clay pots with their saucers, much nicer than plastic, although they do dry out very quickly.
