    Time to give tomatoes a hair cut!!!!

    Trimming tomatoes this time of year helps the ripening process. With less vines to rob energy, more energy can go to the tomatoes and they will be larger and ripen quicker.

    Be careful with bush tomatoes, trimming to many vines will cause sunburn on the tomatoes themselves.   It is always safe to trim the lower branches and the vines that are unhealthy.

    NOTE:  trimming with scissors will leave the branches with a clean cut, they will heal faster and prevent disease and bug intruders.

    NOTE 2:  This also works on peppers.
