    Thanks Conor, we greatly appreciate you taking the time to share your knowledge and insights, this is some of the most practical, interesting and concisely presented information on tomatoes I have watched/read for many many years.

    Wow……… I am so far away from this science.
    I had some cherry tomatoes that started getting soft so I just put them in the ground and said if they grow they grow.
    I water they grow, I surprisingly have three plants in different stages.
    The only thing green about my thumb is how raw I am.
    Nicely done. Cheers.

    Thank you for all your help. My 30 heat tolerant tomato plants are thriving, thanks in large part to you. Warm wishes from South Alabama.

    Assuming a plant has abundance of nutrients, moisture, temperature and so forth, I'm pretty sure the plant directs itself perfectly how it should grow? Am I missing something? I've never had bad yeilds from a plant that has everything it wants. But I guess picking early tomato flowers is a form of steering.

    Mr Crickmore, you have the most impressive operation there on the banks of the Neversink.

    Have you tried using seaweed at the first sign of flowering? Regulating VDIFF isn't possible outside so we use seaweed to increase fruiting stages.
    We found inoculation with Mycorrhizas always increases bio mass and thus improves the frame of any tomatoes we grow.

    Nice one Connor! Does this inturn stress the importance of trying to close the gap when starts are in the ground in early spring?

    Oh, that part where you reassure the little one that having a snake in the green house is good, that really warmed my heart. Never fear nature, I tell my children, be learn all you can and be careful, but never fear.

    I am amazed how learning from a person who is livelihood is dependent on success is so much better than the so called government agent. I'm a firm believer in the old saying " when you can't make it in the real world you become a teacher. Rodney Dangerfield in " Back to school" comes to mind.

    Some more great help/advise! I’m guessing in a hoop or greenhouse using the temperature method will produce the same steering for all plants within that environment? So individual row steering would be more nutrient or moisture controlled? Thanks Coner! What kind of snake did your Daughter find? Cheers

    I'm so glad that you made this video. My pink brandywine tomato is full of beautiful leaves, but no tomatoes. 2019 is a "learning experiences" year for me.
