Do you prune the suckers off the plants grown this way?

Hi Sandy,

No I do not and that is normally part of my problem, I never trim or prune any of my tomato plants. I let them grow too tall and too full but generally I do get a lot of fruit from them. Toward the end of their production I will sometimes thin out most of the bottom branches and leaves. Then it normally time for the Fall planting.
