Are you staking individual plants?

We place stakes every 10 feet or so and run twine along the rows.
Stakes are 5' tall; by the time they're pounded in they're about 4 1/2
feet.  We string three strings; the tomato branches just lay on them -
plenty of support, no problem w/ them hitting the ground, etc.
