I have a very short season here, with the first frost due in mid sept. My tomato plants had a late start because of high winds in May and a late killer frost. I have about 7 plants of about 8 varieties. They have been setting fruit for the last few weeks, some varieties have a lot, some not so many.
I figure that any fruit that sets after around the 20th of this month will not have time to mature depending on the variety. So, I thought if I just cut off any new blossoms after that date, the plants will put their energy into growing the existing fruit larger and maturing them in time. Otherwise, I'm going to have tons of little green tomatoes that will never have a chance to mature.
Does this make sense?
