“Best Buy” Tomato Supports Double As Electric Fence Posts
In 40 years of gardening, I’ve never seen plant supports as simple to set up and easy to adapt as the EZ Step Plant-Support System. I’ve also never seen more rugged and easy to place temporary fence posts.
    We’ve used all types of tomato cages, built wooden support frames, and jury-rigged cattle panel sections. Usually, if they worked in the garden they took up too much space when stored for the off-season.
    A test trial of four, 60-in. EZ Step-In posts with 3 rings each convinced my wife and I that this is the way we will go in coming years. Just step in the modified lower case “h” post and attach the plant support rings where you need them. At the end of the season we will be able to break them down and easily store them out of the way.
    One of the things I like most about the EZ Step Plant-Support System is its versatility. As noted, I can place rings where I think they are needed. As the plant grows and spreads, multiple rings can be set in close proximity, but at different angles to capture a multitude of stems.
    The rebar rod posts are similar in design to traditional, electric fence rebar posts. The difference is the modified lower case “h” step anchor design which gives them more stability. Nelson made his first posts for fencing, only later realizing they would also make great plant supports.
