tomato bushi planted a beefsteak plant in a planter since I live in AZ and its always too hot for tomatoes. I can move it from sun to shade to keep it from overheating. The plant has grown like a crazy bush and has 4 small tomatoes. It still has lots of blossoms but some are falling off. I did fertilize it last week and it looks good. I have a few yellow/brownish leaves near the bottom. My mom says I need to pick out the center branches to help the plant but I don't know where or if that's true. I'm afraid that if this plant gets too wild the tomatoes will be small and fall off before they ripen.
