Gardening maintenance required

Weather permitting, I need to do quite a bit of work with my tomatoes on Monday. NOTE TO SELF: Tomatoes should be tied and retied once a week during the growing season. Letting them go for several weeks without tying them up is an invitation to sprawl. None of the fruits have touched the ground, as far as I can tell, but some of the vines have, and have sent up new shoots that are covered with new blossoms. Today I bought some sisal - or is it jute? - because there just aren't enough scrap strips of cloth in the house to tie up everything that needs tying up.

I may still be on pace with 2016, when I harvested my first tomatoes mid-August. I'm hoping to make and pack away lots of sauce this year.
