Re: How to Grow Beefsteak Tomatoes

as my beefsteaks are about 6 ft tall and growing every day, i was wondering whether or not i should stop their growth by snipping the tops off. can't get cages where i live, just spiral sticks about 5 ft tall. by reading your article, i realize that indeterminate growth is normal...but do i find taller sticks or do i snip? fruit and flowers all up and down. i filled the planting holes with chopt stinging nettle leaves in june, perhaps all that nitrogen is provoking all this vertical growth? i'm in southwest france. any ideas?
