Tomato Plants Too Tall!
I have this problem every year. I currently have 3 tomato plants growing in cages that are anchored by stakes. In the center of each cage I hammered in a 6' tall sturdy stake to which I've tied the plants as they grow taller. What do I do when the plants run out of stake space to support the main stems? Last year, the plants folded over on themselves with nothing left to support them. Is it a good idea to start "topping" each plant? All 3 are healthy and bearing profusly so far. If I cut the tops off, will that affect the plant's production for the rest of the season?
