1- 50 foot root of fencing material or chicken wire
1 pack of electrical ties (5-8 per tomato cage)
I started with a 50 foot roll of fencing material then cut 5 foot long pieces to make cages 18 inches in diameter. Instead of bending the ends to make hooks to hold them together I used electrical ties. When I am done using the cages I can simply cut the electrical ties (I call them zip ties) and store the cages easier.
|I snipped the ends off when I was finished.|

We used these cages in Florida and they were very easy to break down (snip the electrical ties) and move to our next homestead.
*UPDATE* We have been using these same cages for over 5 years and they still work great
