can a patio tomato plant flower too soon? My Patio tomatoes are aproximately 3-4 inches tall and have full open blooms already. I just planted them last week and Cannot see how they will grow a full size tomato as promised if they are flowering already. Should I pull the flowers off or what? HELP!!!

Sounds like your new little plant is quite vigorous. The flower will probably just fall off on its own so don't worry too much about it. New flowers will form and they will develop fruit later in the season. I'd just leave the plant alone. It will figure out when it has enough stored energy to develop and flower into a ripe fruit. Best wishes with your tomato plant!
