Not “steak and tomatoes” but tomato stakes, those wonderful supports you place around your cute little tomato plants. It takes planning and a healthy dose of optimism to set them up early. While you’re waiting around for the perfect day to do that chore, your tiny plants morph into shrubs.

Okay, now that I’m done telling myself off, I’m happy to report that I did manage to wrangle a couple of folding plant stakes around the prolific tomatoes. I’m glad that’s done!
While I was at it, I tied a couple of old wooden trellises together into an A-frame for the pumpkin vines. Hopefully, [insert optimism here] the elevated fruit deters the midnight foragers. Time will tell.
