I pinch off any budding when young, then prune off the entire top growing tip when it is
apparent at ten-12 inches and an easy snip leaving 1/4 inch.

It is working for me at this point. Fast forward two-three weeks and i have a sturdier
plant with a nice wide canopy growing out, not up and leggy. I don't want any fruit
setting this early.

Beginning to harden off this weekend in the shade, warm weather 10 day forecast.
