May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

String Stakes

The string supports my husband tied for the tomatoes on the deck have been fantastic. You just tie the plants as they grow, making them nice and flat so there's plenty of air flow.

They're right to the top of the window now, and look lovely from inside too.


  1. That's a great idea - it must give a lovely green shade indoors as well. I hope the heat and fire in your part of Australia have subsided a bit now.

  2. Great, natural insulation for he hotter months too! Not to mention creating a cool, jungle feel to the inside of the house.
