Tomato plant stems are dying, but growing new shoots
My container cherry tomato plant stems are dying, but is growing new shoots. It is at the end of the season and I continue to harvest healthy tomatoes. The temperatures are going down to 40 degrees at night, but it is in the 70's during the day. I have a very sunny apartment and can bring the plant indoors. My questions are:
Can I cut the dead stems off the plant before the shoots, without killing the plant?
Will these new shoots grow tomatoes or should I just harvest the remainder of the fruits and call it a day (season)?
