Raybo, you must need a ladder to get up to the fruit on that giant scaffold!! A great setup, and the plants are looking wonderful. Hope you're all done with quakes, fires, hail etc for the season.

Looking great, Ray! I know I've asked you this before, but do you prune your plants much? Now that I'm experiencing early blight for the first time, I'm thinking I need to prune less, but when I don't prune, the 'tainer cages seem to get so incredibly crowded!! Just wondering what you have had most success with in our area.

I spend most of the time "tucking" the growth back into the cage systems with only a minor amount of pruning. When the plants reach the second horizontal rung from the top, I prune the growth to keep the plants within the cages.
