To pick or not to pick? the question
I have some tomatoes growing on my still less than 2 feet tall tomato plants. They don't look sturdy enough to support a fully ripened tomato, and since I have had one plant bow over from the weight of a green tomato this morning and broken at the base of the main stem...they aren't.
My question is this:
Should I remove these early tomatoes before they have a chance to develop and break my plants? AND Will that have any negative effects?
What is the common practice for these types of situations?
