In The Garden: Tangle Of Tomatoes

Does it really matter if our tomato plants are a tangled mess?

Perhaps planting three varieties of tomatoes in a row in a small raised planter was not making the most of our space but no matter, we are growing a nice crop of heirloom beauties.

These are Red Fig tomatoes. Not yet ripe enough to eat but they do look gorgeous.

This is the second year now that our tomato plants might be in need of pruning. A. seems to think it essential. Other gardeners have told me to just leave the plants be. Our tomato plants may have been overgrown last year, but that certainly didn't stop them with providing us a bumper crop.
