My father and I are disagreeing about my tomato and pepper plants.
I think he’s wrong. Help me out here, smart people.
We have about a month until a frost is expected, thanks to climate change. I mean yeah a lot of days will have lows in the 40s before then probably, but pretty consistently the first weekend of November is looking to be the expected frost time.
I feel like the slicer tomatoes and large peppers have no chance of setting fruit and it ripening between now and then, so I think I should trim off the branches like that to force the plants to shove all their efforts into the fruit already growing.
The cherry tomatoes and sweet banana peppers? Those things grow like lightning speed so I don’t see a reason to trim those.
My dad thinks this is horrible and I shouldn’t trim anything.
What should I do?
