Nice!

By late summer you will have a tomato privacy fence!

She doesn't need a privacy fence, She's a country lady.

I too use concrete wire. The rust has never been a problem for me. I don't know if you can find 6 inch square galvanized wire. The concrete were I like is the 5 foot tall, but 4 would work. If you use 10 square (60 inches) you will get a 20 in diameter cage. I snipe off the bottom horizontal wires to make little spears to stick into the ground to hold the cage. I have done this for many years with great success.

I don't sell my produce. I can a lot, eat a lot, and give away a lot. I keep thinking that when I retire I can sell my stuff at the farmers market, and maybe at least break even on the costs of production.

I actually have been working on my 'privacy fence'. Last summer I fenced the whole garden, and I have been planting clematis and other flowering vines on the house side of the fence, and pole beans along the the other sides. I have a neighbor up the hill-- his driveway runs along the far side of the garden. His wife runs a beauty shop in the house, so there is a little traffic there. (Jeez, sometimes 4 cars a day drive by! It is like the Dan Ryan Expressway!)

Otherwise, I am so country I don't even have curtains. :)
