Tomato tip!

When growing tomatoes ~ pinch out the 'extra' growth that grows in the crook of the plant. If you leave it, the plant will put its energy into growing more plant. If you remove it, the plant will focus its energy on "fruit" production = more tomatoes! See picture below.

New growth in crook -
should pinch it when it's quite small, but I just noticed many on my plants today...

Another view ~ a little blurry though...

It's gone! Yay ~ more tomatoes!

If anyone wants to give a more "expert" explanation ~ please leave a comment! We would all appreciate it... =)


  1. Kym is an expert gardener when it comes to tomatoes...and he doesn't have a more technical term for it!


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Abundant blessings on your day... Joanie
