So i have always had an issue of staking my newly transplanted tomatoes so what I came up with this year is working great so far and is simple and cheap (free for me). I took some wire hangers that i get with my work uniforms, cut them down and straightened them and bent hooks on them to use as stakes. Will post pics later

The best tomato apparatus I have found is remesh bent round. It holds all the vines up off the ground and is easy to install.
