Lampshade Tomato Cage!


Wednesday, June 12, 2013




Lampshade Tomato Cage

We had a lampshade falling apart, Jim went to toss it in trash - I said, "tear the material off and give me the frame"

Instant tomato cage!

See the tomato in background? It is inside the frame of the lampshade

Next time I'm at a yardsale, if they have old lampshades real cheap, I'm buying them!

Anyone have other tips to share for our garden?

    Great idea! My parents always used to use wooden stakes and tied the tomatoes to them with old nylons/pantyhose.

I like the idea of the lampshade better because my tomato cages are hard to store and get bent up way too easily.

Thanks!

    Awesome idea! I was so distracted by looking at the beautiful flowers that I wouldn't have noticed the tomato unless you pointed it out.

    I agree, great idea! emoticon I love repurposing things. I use the Freecycle Network a lot, too. It is a great thing to keep stuff out of the landfill and if you have no need for something, someone else may.

    Good for short plants! I have to use the tomato cages for my daylilies---they are growing so tall they need support, too.

    Awesome. After having spent $5 each for 6 new cages, I commend you.
