What is with my bad luck with breaking tomatoes?! Last year I pulled my Florida weave too tight and snapped one of my tomato plants off at the top. This year, I didn't get my black cherry secured and we had so much wind it snapped right off. It was growing so much taller than the honey of Mexico I was waiting to secure it. Waited too long!
I was especially disappointed because the broken section had some flower buds on it! Well it's not the end of the world. The laterals - the side shoots - of tomato plants grow just as well as the main shoot. I hope. And at least now the two plants are the same size. Since this photo I have gone in and set up a second layer of Florida weave to keep them from snapping again.
And the good news is there are some more flower buds. They're both small-fruited tomatoes so it might not be too long before the first fruits come in. Hopefully before Christmas!
