Gardeners will love the unique design of the Cage-a-Crop tomato cage. Improved aesthetics and use of stronger materials over the standard cage allow the Cage-a-Crop to stand up to more plant weight while giving customers a more pleasing look to their garden. With its interlocking system, it can be connected to additional cage sets, allowing the customer to create a caged growing environment of almost any dimension or configuration. Easy to assemble and disassemble, it conveniently stores flat in the off season; it also has the added utility of a flower support or trellis for climbing plants and vines.

It provides increased coverage of the system, improved absorption of the moisture, and uniform distribution of the fog. The Revolution II provides for a vented horizontal air stream around the perimeter of the fan just below the fog nozzles. By integrating the air stream into the fog, the moisture is carried along and can cover a larger area. This allows the fog system to cool or humidify up to 5 times the amount of air compared to static line misting systems.

The Farwest Trade Show is always a good time to see people face-to-face and close orders. This year, it was the best show in four years. I talked to several people who wrote orders. But Farwest is just as good of an opportunity to buy as it is to sell. You can see a piece of equipment, ask questions, and find out how it can be customized. It takes less time. For a small business like ours, that's very important.
