Our heirloom tomatoes need staking, both the cherries and the larger ones. Imagine pounding in stakes by hand in temperatures above 90F. Right, quite brutal. In the past we would start at 5.30am and stop around 10am when it just got too much. This year we have made progress, Ramon is using a pneumatic stake pounder which works using the compressor that we bought to spray the domes with concrete. The job has been transformed.
