REMEMBER MY SUPER-DUPER TOMATO-TRELLIS? The one I built from long, skinny sumac saplings and jute twine? I’m sorry to say it collapsed in a miserable heap this morning, still covered with vines and fruit, during a visit from tropical rain storm “Nicole”:
How proud I was of this no-cost architectural statement (above, to the right) that supported untold quantities of fruit all summer. Alas, I’ll have to find a sturdier system for next year, one that won’t topple over during our increasingly wacky weather.
Did “Nicole” strike your area, too? Any damage to report?
