      Hi Glori!

      Thanks so much for the note and sorry about that! I’ve updated the video and it’s playing all the way through now.

    A couple questions about the tie up trellising. What kind of twine is used on the metal hanger, and about how much do you wind on it? And how many clips would I need to plan per tomato plant? I *think* I have an idea of how to do that without a green house. Now to implement it!

      Hi Joelle,

      First, we like to use compostable twine. You may have to find some online like this one on Amazon or this one is perhaps more heavy duty. You’ll want one that is heavy duty as the tomato plants can become quite heavy with the fruit on them.

      Second we wind them about 12 feet or so onto one clip. If a tomato goes all season they can grow pretty tall.
