Keep or take off strawberry netting?

Post  JustMe on Tue 10 Jul 2012, 3:14 pm

My tomato plants are not faring well. The healthiest tomato plant is the volunteer that popped up in the strawberry box, which is wrapped with 4' high plastic netting around and over it.

Some of the strawberries are still producing.

The tomato plant is 3 feet tall at this point and has a few flowers. At this point, this is the most promising plant I have.

Should I remove the top of the strawberry box netting to allow it to grow taller? If I take it off, the deer might eat the tomato plant. Or should I keep the top netting on and risk stunting the growth?

I sprinkle cayenne pepper on a few leaves to keep the deer at bay, they have not really bothered my tomatoes, I think because they are so strong smelling the deer don't like them.
