Do you want to grow tomatoes? Lots of tomatoes?
I’ve been experimenting with pruning the cherry tomatoes in my tower garden — I discovered in early June that the two cherry tomato plants would absolutely take over the tower if they were not seriously pruned.
Not only are the plants producing hundreds, yes hundreds, of tomatoes but taking out lots of leafy branches lets the sun reach the center where the other plants like parsley, basil, mint, cucumbers and string beans are thriving.
The cucumbers are ready for harvest now and although I won’t have hundreds, the healthy vines are promising a steady supply for our nightly salad.
