The Great Tomato Project Continued

So far my tomato project has been a great success. Lyla loves to pick the red ones any chance she gets.
In my last tomato post I had just transplanted my starts into the planter...
...and the big plastic buckets from Albertsons.   
They've grown so thick that it is finally time that I get around to thinning them out. It's good to clip off a lot of the extra stems that don't have tomato buds for two reasons. 1. So the plant can focus all its energy on the fruit. AND 2. So the fruit can get the most sunlight possible.

This morning I spent a good while spacing out the pots, thinning out their branches, and giving them a good drink.
Keep coming tomatoes!
