Time to Trim the Tomatoes


If you have tomatoes growing in your veggie garden you may have noticed that the lower leaves are starting to turn yellow. Don't worry, this is quite normal. Just give the lower stalks a trim, taking off the yellow leaves. This will allow the plant to put all it's energy into growing nice fat, juicy tomatoes. It also helps air circulation, important during humid weather to prevent disease.
