How do you know it is time to cut back the tomatoes? Oh, perhaps when they grow a net of viney branches across the door to the hoop house, preventing your entry. Lucky for me, I was prepared with a pair of sharp shears and twine. Hacking and whacking, I made a considerable dent in the overgrowth. It looks much better now, still lush but not quite so formidable. I even found the first of many tomatoes, small orange cherry tomatoes that are delicious. There were more Hungarian Hot Wax peppers, as well as the first of the jalepenos.
I always plan to do a better job of pruning, every year, and still I wind up with a jungle of a mess. If only I followed the advice of the experts as viewed on this video!
