Prune Tomato Plants Like a Pro
“I am not a professional farmer of tomatoes, but several weeks ago I took a trip out to a local farm to pick strawberries and also to pick the brain of some of the folks there on how to grow tomatoes well. Each year we grow tomatoes in our kitchen garden, with some years yielding more than others, but I wanted a more consistent outcome this year. Instead of large bushy plants that grew some tomatoes over the summer, I was looking for an abundant harvest that would put us knee-deep in tomato sandwiches well into August. Here’s what I learned about pruning tomato plants for a better yield.”
There’s nothing like eating a homegrown tomato, am I right? And if you want your garden to churn out the tomatoes by the bucket this year, it’s imperative that you follow these helpful tips so that you prune them correctly. So let’s get to work while we daydream of all the yummy fruits we’ll be harvesting this year.
