Wrapping anything around your plants will potentially harm them no matter what twine you use. I suggest using tomato trellis clips and you should have no problems. Check em out!

Good video David. I started this year with cheap organic twine and it’s been so much of a headache! 🙂 Keep doing what you’re doing, God Bless. Wayne

Great info! I have been using the MM for several years with great success and your videos still are teaching me useful tips. It really is true that the closer you adhere to the method the more success you will have. I have seen a lot of people “improve” upon the method with little success, but you have given several tips that really do improve the system. Keep it up.

Thanks so much updating your tips. I too agree, learning at someone else’s expense is by far the most cost effective. So all I can do right now is thank you for sharing caring and your humility. Oh, and producing a very easy to hear and listen to production.

just a .great video right from the heart .where do you get the bailer twine 140 lbs strenght.

LDSPrepper @ 4:03 pm #

I recommend 170 lbs baler twine. I added a link in the description box below the video. I hope that helps.

Thank you for your comments. At the beginning I kept trying to improve the system. I learned I can’t. This video shows “improvements” I made and now have hanged. I don’t use packaging twine, extra hardware to tighten the wire and I put the PVC arch in the inside. I added the additional wire on top after seeing Jim Kennard’s garden a few weeks ago. Sometimes I think we (he) does things and it is so natural he forgets to share the details. I’m all about details. I hope these help you and others.

Thank you for your comments. We have used the clips for many years. My experience is they last about one year. But you never know when they are going to break. Because they break and the mason line (thin poly line) also breaks the majority of my wife’s vertical plants have fallen. Some completely damaged other we were able to save. We now both use the baler twine. Because of the money she has spent it is taking her longer to stop using the clips. But she has almost all of them off her plants now
