Tie up your tomatoes early, or you’ll have problems late

I mean it’s not really a problem it’s just sort of a mess.

I took a few of the really dragging tomato stalks and tied them up a bit- but in the process of fussing with the plant I lost a ripening tomato so I stopped fussing.

See- they’re tied up with soft ties!

Only…

These stalks? Can’t be tied. Not without dislodging more than the one baby tomato I lost.

So my plant is slightly less of a mess then it was yesterday woo-hoo!

This is why maintenance has to be done early on plants, because they will grow however they will grow, and once a plant is large fixing things can be impossible.

Oh well. Lesson learned.

Now onto more rain!
