Tomato plants are supported by strings attached to an overhead support system made with 8 foot rebar and a few 8 foot steel fence posts. Plastic ties are used and the support is removed at the end of the season. There are 23 plants in an area about 8 feet wide and 20 feet long. Suckers are not removed from the plants and they are free growing. Strings are added throughout the season to support any free growing branches as required.
