Pruning Tomatoes- Great Article. 6 reasons to prune tomatoes: 1. More flavorful tomatoes. 2. Larger tomatoes. 3. More tomatoes over length of a season. 4. Keep leaves & fruits off the ground, away from pests, insect damage, fungal disease. 5. Keep plants smaller & more compact. 6. Allows tomatoes on plant at the end of season to ripen before 1st frost. Removing unneeded growth tips, new growth in the “V” between 2 stems, allows plant to concentrate energy on fruit rather than foliage.

"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"
