-TOMATO TRELLIS AS GARDEN FEATURE

With our expanded rooftop farm area I decided to get away from the troublesome tomato wire cages. In an effort to add some style and create a focal point in the garden, I constructed the cedar trellis in about 3 hours. The trellis function is to maximize growing space and allow the tomatoes to grow vertically. The vision for this rooftop farm is to create a living space integrated into a place to grow vegetables.
