Good day! I got an early start on tomatoes from seed this and they got quite large before getting a chance to plant them out. Several are determinate/early varieties, of which I've never grown. They are starting to flower, and I'm not sure if I should let them fruit out, or pluck 'em. For my indeterminates they get plucked because they have plenty of time, but since determinates only give fruit over a "determined" period, I'm not sure how to handle this.

Mapsringer, My "determinant" Roma grew to 8-10' tall and produced until the frost. Of course I treated it like an indeterminant, limiting the number of suckers allowed to grow until it got so tall and thick to reach.

That's a good question, mapspringer. I don't know the answer but if you don't get an answer may I suggest that if you have more than one plant of the same type then remove the flowers from half of them and leave the flowers on the other half and see what happens

If it's still in the pot the plant is probably putting on flowers due to stress. I would pinch off the blooms. Once it gets out into the garden give it a few week before allowing the fruit set.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
