Farm tomatoes at home is not complicated! Whether in a vegetable garden or in a pot, you must know my father's tip to harvest more next year:

Using a sharp knife or pruning shears, prune all the lower branches of your tomato plants. The best time to perform this operation is during a hot day and with dry soil.

Never cut the main stems (there may be between 1 and 3 main stems). Cut the lower branches, but remember to leave foliage on the top, because the tomato plants need shade.

These branches do not produce fruits, they increase the water needs of plants, they often remain wet after watering, which makes them more likely to catch fungi and parasites. The prune of these branches will improve the flow of air and water under the plants.

So, your tomato plants will become stronger and you will get more tomatoes.
