Our tomato cages were gross and junky looking, but I’m not about to pay $7 for the nice, painted ones!
My friend Erin told me about how she spray painted tomato cages and got that fancy look for a fraction of the price. I tried it on our free, rusty ones (six from my dad, two from freecycle).
It took two cans of $4 spray paint for eight cages. I thought a light blue would look nice outside.
I love em! They stand out, they make it look pretty, they hold my tomatoes up when they’re feeling down.
In a perfect world, they would all be the same height. But in that perfect world, I would have paid $32.
These were a dollar per cage!
That’s pretty perfect to me.
