  1. My Roma Tomato plants are really tall… butI have no fruit? Do you know why?🤷‍♀️

  2. I still speed it up, but really appreciate the full explanations. This is such precious information we ALL NEED in this shift in global acts shifts, undermining our food supply

  3. We have high winds here, and so I can't do that particular style of growing but I do have 9 foot square tomato cages(self made) that I stake to a metal fence post (18 inches in the ground minimum) and that seems to keep everything upright.

  4. Rory Goodden says:

    What do you mean by family on one plant, I’m confused. Can u elaborate somehow or how do i identify it. Lost all to blight.

  5. I’m here for the scarole

  6. ann says:

  7. This was so helpful!! My tomatoes are almost as tall as me and full of fruit!!! 🎉

  8. Tammy Depew says:

    What can I do about tomato leaf curl? We had such a hot dry spring/ early summer which I thought that’s what started it but now we are having frequent rain.

  9. My tomatoes are caged and beyond, some have fallen over, how much should I prune…

  10. Hi James love your videos. My problem is my tomatoes trees are about nine feet tall , can I cut in half.

  11. Always cooperate with you 😊

  12. Such a loyal good friend 😊

  13. Everyone desire self sufficient and self control 😊

  18. All home garden government need give glass ceilings also solar panel free to help prevent pests bad weather generate energy too😊

  19. What if I have a few tomatoes at the bottom?

  20. I don't know the difference between determinate and indeterminate tomatoes. I am growing cherry tomatoes this year. What group do they belong to?

  21. I do all the same things that you do to my determinate tomato plants except I do double stems. I leave the sucker above the first fruit cluster to become a second stem. I don't find it reduces the fruit size greatly and of course doubles the yield of the plant. I always have a few single stem just for the sake of comparisons. I do a significant amount of experimentations just to see what works and what doesn't. This year I'm all in five gallon containers, nothing in the ground. This way I rest the soil bed a year to rebuild it's nutrients and minerals. Overworked soil produces less healthy plants each year after about four years of planting.

    ❤ been watching your channel ( I thought I hit subscribe) today. noticed differently, SO hit it sub!!! ❤ P.s. Built your 4 x8 pallet box (4) and forgot TOMATOES need Room!! Planted 10 . Result. Tomato jungle!!! ❤.

  23. Lee Kelley says:

    Nice vids bro we just moved out to the country and got plenty of land to plant and grow whatever we want. No HOA, city, nothing. First thing we started planting was cherry tomatoes and they’re doing great and I’m growing them up like you are. Next we’re about to plant peppers, green beans and zucchini.

  24. What do you use for mulch? TIA!

  25. Argh… Today's weather forecast was clear! I pruned extensively, and it rained all evening. 😢

  26. Lchichi says:

    Love it bud. Thanks this is just what I needed to hear. Keep growing food!

  27. Jerry Lin says:

    Do you remove every single suckers from the tomato plant or just the ones below the first fruit cluster?

  28. Debra Nunez says:

    what state are you in?? doesn't that matter? I am in OKC and it's different than Texas or Kansas .. right? love the videos… short, SHOWY (of actual clipping and touching where we need to cut, pinch, dig, tie, etc… really makes it easier to see HANDS ON Plants!! Good job kiddo!! lol… love the energy!!

  29. Carrie Coan says:

    I too love the fast talk and I’m from the deep south! You pack your videos with tons of info! There is no long drawn out explanations full of things we don’t need to know. You’re the best! Thanks for sharing!

  30. KSP says:

    I've seen tomatoes produce extremely well with four hours of sunlight daily. Prune them well to allow sunlight into the middle of the plant and space them a little further apart. Super Fantastic is an excellent hybrid for part shade like that.

  31. Tayto says:

    So I have to keep my tomato’s in buckets, because we have a terrible vole problem in the area. We are in a hot, but humid climate and the heat can reach 105f. I don’t use mulch, just soil. Should I try this with mulch or not? What would you recommend?

  32. R A says:

    Love watching your videos! ❤

  33. Can long droopy leaves be cut shorter.

  34. Sista Chic says:

    I'm new to your channel, and I'd like to thank you for finally clarifying that you don't prune determinate tomatoes. None of the pruning videos I've watched ever say that! I'd also like to give you a high five🖐for talking about getting out into the garden regardless of the weather. I can't believe how many lazy gardeners are out there. I've worked in drizzle, overcast, blistering hot, whatever. If the garden needs your time, it needs your time. Anyway, thanks!

  35. MissPImake says:

    Hi James, do you remove the suckers off the cherry tomatoes?

  36. Im building my first garden with a variety of things so all the information helps. Im getting a greenhouse as my warm seasons are 7-8 months out of the year.

  37. Just ... no says:

    Thank you for the info!

  38. B K says:

    Question… I’ve seen people harvest the lowest set of ripe fruit and then prune off up to the next fruit branch. This continues to focus on the fruit. Any ideas on the later season upkeep after the plant has produced? Thanks

  39. Matt Wilson says:

    Have you always been looking for the Truth?

    Jesus Christ loves you and died for you…
    ALL who believe in Him will be saved

    John 3:15
    That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    1 Timothy 2:4-6
    Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
    For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
    Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

    The Gospel
    1 Corinthians 15:1-4
    Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    Christ died (Shedd his Blood) as a sinless man on the Cross for ALL humans as the final sacrifice. On the third day He Arose according to the scriptures defeating death. And now all who believe that ARE saved

    We are ALL SINNERS
    Can I Be Good Enough?

    Romans 3:23-26
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
     Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
    Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

    We Need Jesus

    Romans 3: 10-12
    As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
    There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
    They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

    Hell or Heaven?
    Matthew 10:28
    And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    Matthew 23:13
    Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

    HELL IS The Cost of Sin without Christ

    If you pray this prayer with faith you will be saved and have eternal life in Christ.

    “I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that Christ died for my sins and rose three days later from the grave. Thank you for forgiving my sin on the cross. You alone Jesus is now why I have forgiveness and eternal life. Thank you in Jesus name. Amen.”

    If you have prayed this with faith you are Forgiven and now in the body of Christ. WoooooooooHooooooooo you are now going to HEAVEN INDEFINITELY and I’ll be there with you on that day.
    Welcome brother or sister into the Body of Christ

    Romans 8:38-39
    For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
    Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


    Matthew 3:36
    He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
