Have you ever had a tomato growing too far out of control? Or maybe it's looking very sickly due to mite damage. Would it be worth cutting it down and trying to get it to grow back? What if a wind storm snapped your tomato branches off? Should you just compost the plant and cut your losses?

This Summer I decided to test this out on my 2 determinate tomatoes, grown in a 30-gallon SIP self-watering tote. They were getting super tall and shading out my other plants. The lower leaves were drying out from mite damage. Meanwhile, I couldn't give the tomatoes away fast enough!

So I took a break from my tomato harvest and cut the plants down, pretty low. Watch the video to see if they grew back before the Fall frost set in! Also, I found a way to sustain a tomato branch in case it should snap off for some reason.
