Tomato pruning time again. This time I removed everything within about 18" of the ground. Insects will attack the lowest leaves and branches, and that's where damage can lead to other issues. Had a wheel barrow half full of tomato leaves when I was done. The plants I grow tend to have huge leaves that grow downward and one leaf can be 16-18"+ long so they can really hang low around the bottom of the plant and attract bugs.
Had to water again today. With as hot as it's been in our area,and very little rain, like an inch in a month, it's a good idea to keep the ground saturated regularly to prevent calcium lockout. Also a good idea to spray some Bonide 544 and 166 early before sunrise while the dew is still on the plants for additional preventative maintenance. I use 544 one day, then 166 the next, then Neem another time and repeat as directed on the labels. Blooms really drop and won't set as easily if not taken care of when there is a 100° heat index and practically no rain.
Counted close to 200 green Belgium pink . Some are already nearing a pound plus.
Cocktail tomatoes there must be at least a thousand,maybe more, green ones. A few hundred on each plant.
All I have is tomatoes and watermelons this year. So there's not much else to report on.
