I was wondering about my out-of-control cherry tomato plant.  How long can the vines get?  Mine is over 8 ft. tall (I have it tied up to a porch post) and I've never had a tomato plant grow this large.  I haven't fed it, just watered it.  If anyone has any information on this I would appreciate it.  I have several friends who think I should kill it before it kills me!

Many of my plants are eight feet tall and extending past where I can tie them to stakes. Just let them flop back down; they'll be fine. And they'll continue to produce.
