Cutting tomatoes

My tomatoes are like 8 ft tall should I cut them down or just let them grow. I think I have a little to much Nitrogen in my soil this year. I am starting to get tomatoes, so should I just let it be.

If the tomatoes are coming in, you might want to suspend growth. You want the energy to go into fruit production now, not more green growth. Just pinch off all the those little suckers as they sprout on the top end....if you can reach it...

tomato that's about golf ball sized already. But the plants are only about 18" or so.
I'd take the above advice and stunt any further plant growth.

Yeah, I was actually shocked when I looked. Really, it's about the size of a golf ball. I've got to baby green peppers too. Go figure

Makes sense. The one of few localities to have decent warmth and sun for warm crops this early. Course its been dry there too. Desert aided by artificial water availability. Use water while you got it.
My tomato plants are short 1.5 ft. tall things. Lotsa flowers. No fruit yet. Sunny weather and heat will make the difference soon. Jalopenos haven't started flowering yet. Dave
