You may plan to have tomatoes this year. If so, you will need to support them. Tomato stakes are one method. However, you can make your own support cages. It may not cost much money, either.
Look in your shed. Do you see any fencing material? This will make excellent cages. If you do not have some, you can buy some inexpensive fencing. Your local home improvement center should have all kinds. You will not need a lot, to make several cages.
When you have your fencing, cut it in small sections. You probably want them to measure a foot or so in diameter. Wrap it around itself into cylinders. Slide it over the plant. You will need to drive small stakes or pieces of wood to hold it down. Did you know that you can use smaller versions for other uses? By the way, one foot is equal to about 32 centimeters.
Do cats or wildlife get into your flowers and plants? Small cages may be just what you need. They need only be a foot or so high in some cases. When you make the small cylinders, cut the bottom ring. Leave the sides. This will give you something to stick into the ground. You will not need any stakes, this way. Small animals should leave your plants alone.
You may use fencing material for a mower area. This works best for smaller lawn mowers. You will need two fence posts. Tall fencing will work well in this case. Make a small area against another fence. Come out a few feet from the fence. Your area can be as wide as you like. Put fencing on the top also. This will give you support for something like a tarp. Attach the tarp with bungee cord or rope. This shelter is nothing fancy. However, it will work well, until you can get permanent shelter, like a shed.
The reason why you need to start simple.
