I thought the shape of my tomato was good but growth has been slow. Not sure if it has potential or not. Domingoes are way outperforming the others but mostly on plant size and number of tomatoes not sure if I have seen the tomato size potential of every plant and I probably wont since the non-domingoes are looking poor. I get more ribbons that amount to nothing on the non-domingoes and poorer pollination rates. Anyhow I want to grow in V shaped trellises or U shaped next year. I don't like dense caged plants. The older foliage gets blocked in and grown over and the plant gets overly dense. It doesnt seem optimal. I want to grow them at six foot spacing, and get an early start. I should plan for the vines to be pruned to four or five feet but longer too if they are still growing within the trellis.
