TO MAKE THIS AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE, I WOULD RECOMMEND SUCKERING OR CLIPPING OFF SOME GROWTH OFF THE MAIN STEM. EVERYTHING FROM THE GROUND UP TO 4” SHOULD BE PINCHED OFF THE MAIN STEM. EVEN IF YOU HAVE SOME FRUIT GROWING ON THEM. THE REASON IS THAT THE PLANT WILL THEN GO TO THE PRODUCTION OF THE FRUIT AND LEAVES ABOVE THE GROUND. THIS SHOULD BE DONE THROUGHOUT THE LIFE OF YOUR PLANT. HOPEFUL IT WILL LAST YOU TILL THE FALL IF WE DO NOT HAVE THE KILLER HEAT. JUST TO LET YOU KNOW LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME AT 1 PM IT WAS 96 DOWN HERE ON THE FARM.
