The pots are hung in macrame-like hangers I make from clothesline or nylon
cord.  The plants grow up inside the tent-like space, and as they get larger
and branch out, I just loop green twine around them a couple of times.
The pots hang about two feet apart, and as they grow, they begin to
and support each other. Once in a while one gets too rambunctious and I have
to prune back a stem but usually by the middle of the summer I have a wall
full of tomatoes.  My biggest problem is a squirrel who sometimes uses the
pots to try to reach a tube-feeder that hangs in the middle of the pots.  He
sometimes breaks off a branch.

How do you support the tomatos growing in pots along your garage wall?
