Insane tomato plants, part 2
I went outside today with the kids. While looking over the garden, I noticed that my poor Bear Claw tomato plant had snapped two large branches. They'd come unwound from the twisty support I'd wrapped them around, which I far prefer to cages. Unfortunately one stem was the terminal one, which means (I think) that what is on the plant right now in terms of fruit and flowers is all I'll get. That's still about a dozen tomatoes or so, if they all mature. I'm being optimistic. Next year I'll have to get some velcro ties to keep them attached to their support.
