Stake tomatoes now or wait?

I just planted my tomatoes yesterday but didn't tie them up yet. We're expecting a severe storm with high winds this evening. Would you stake the tomatoes now or wait until tomorrow? Which do you think would cause less damage: leaving the tomato vines along the ground for now or tying them up before the storm? They're 12" to 18" tall/long.

  • I would wait. They are not so tall that they need to be staked yet. I usually wait until they are to the point that they really need to be staked but that is me.
