Sometimes I tend to over research things. I get so caught up in the details that I defeat myself before I even begin - I don't have that tool, I don't have the skill, I can't keep track of all that! Sometimes, I just go do things.

Since my container was square, I found four straight long branches and pushed them into the corners. I tied them together at the top with yarn. Then I took four smaller branches and tied them horizontally to the support branches. I tied the two opposite sides and then put the last two on top of that. Then I moved upwards and repeated that process. I ended up with a teepee with two levels far enough apart I could still get my hand, and watering can, inside.
I'm hoping that my patio tomato doesn't need a cage, but we'll see. I'm not sure I can make one of those!
