Now that my thumb has changed from black to green, I will be spending much more time on my garden. The tomato plants in the back yard are soaring past the 7 foot mark, and I would not be surprised if they reached 8 feet this season. They certainly could use a little more support. A few good quality arbors might be good for those vining tomato plants. Or maybe since the tomatoes want last year round, a nice wooden arbor as an entrance to a small secret garden would be more satisfying. I have always wanted a little garden off to the side where I could plant some very fun special plants, and I think a garden arbor would be a perfect way to showcase a special garden. Then I could put a small chair or bench in the garden and it would be a perfect spot to sit and gaze at all the hard work that goes into starting and maintaining a beautiful yard. Arbors are a great investment, they will last for years, and give your climbing vines a special home. I have some great ideas for our yard, now if I could just convince my husband to help with the transformation!
