I saw the banana. I wondered if you were in Florida. PR is even more tropical.Nice looking tomatoes.

Thank you all for your positive reviews. Yes staking and pruning give you the option of more plants per square feet. I haven't tried trellising or cages yet. Are them a better option? Bacterial spot and leave miners hit the plants early in the growing season I thought I would not be able to get a harvest. But I did a aggressive spray schedule and I manage to control bacterial spot. BTW the plants feed with tomato tone were more resistant to this disease. I also happy that people here can understand my English. Lol
