    very helpful - glad I checked this before I started - I didn't realize you don't do this for determinants!!! Thank you so much!

    Good idea, but if you live in a climate where the un is strong you will put the fruit at a grater risk of getting sunburned.

    The suckers can be held in water, root, and I give to friends for their own tomato gardens. I have done that dozens of times. and the friends LOVE to not have to start theirs from scratch. I really have to pay attention to determinate vs indeterminate varieties.
