Tomato Trimming Time

We knew that this past Sunday was going to be hot so we got up early and headed out to the valley. It was in the 70's by 8am.

We're leasing additional acreage on another property this season, including another 100ft of hoop house/greenhouse for tomatoes. We're increasing production because one can never have too many tomatoes!

We trimmed and wound tomatoes for a little over two hours. When we started it was 80 degrees in the greenhouse and over 100 degrees when we finished. The plants were happy but we were a little wilted. There was a lot of ice water and iced tea that afternoon.

We put together a little video to demonstrate how and why we trim and wind tomato plants. Be gentle with us, it is our first one and we're still getting our video chops. 

Please enjoy!
