I've been pulling the tomatoes during the "turning" stage in the hope that it will let the plant focus on the remaining fruit. I don't know if there's any science to it, but that's my thinking. I'm also getting such a sparse harvest that I'll be rather infuriated if I lose any of it to critters and birds. So I'm yanking them to keep them safe.
I've got lots and lots more green beans sprouting from the second planting I did. They are overgrowing my supports and shading the broccoli I planted one bed over. I think my green bean arbor I'm planning for next year is a good idea.
