While I was out of town I suddenly remembered that I had intended to remove the lower shoots of my tomato plants this year. It's supposed to make the remaining plants more vigorous or something. We'll see. I didn't touch the cherry tomato plant--in my experience, they don't need any help in the production department--but I did take the bottom branches off of two of the other plants this morning, leaving one control plant intact. Brian has a half-dozen tomato plants growing, too, so I am really looking forward to tomato season this year. We have a couple of week-long trips planned in July and I think I'll have to hire a kid to keep an eye on my gardens while we're gone.
