Should I prune Better Boy tomato plants?
This is my first year growing better boy tomatoes. They've been in the ground for 5 weeks, are about 36" tall, have a TON of leaves and stems (in my inexperienced opinion) and a few small tomatoes. I've attached a picture of the tangled mess.
I planted them about 2.5 ft apart, not realizing how huge the plants would get. Last year my tomatoes did terrible because of poor soil. I didn't expect this!
Some are supported by standard tomato cages and twine, the others are supported by wood stakes and twine. The leaves are so dense, I worry about disease.
I know better boy's are indeterminate and don't require pruning. However, I'm not so sure I should let these things grow so many stems. Any advice would be appreciated!
