Re: QUESTION: Tomato Problem....

Leaf curl on tomatoes can be the result of weather conditions. If the fruit is good, I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: QUESTION: Is August too late to prune tomatoes

I grow heirloom tomatoes,and have always pruned delicately (suckers mostly). Every year, I ended up with a gigantic mess on my hands. This year I am whacking. My goal is to keep the center of the plant open so light and air get to it. I cut leaves, branches, suckers. Theoretically, I should get fewer tomatoes, but they should be better quality. Unfortunately, we have had an "Arctic" summer in my area. It has been overcast and cool most of the summer. I have very few tomatoes, and I doubt that those will ripen unless the weather changes dramatically.
