Hi all,

I just wanted to thank everyone who offered suggestions on my ailing Gold
Nuggets with the lemon yellow leaves (with dark green veining).  They've
had a second round of manure tea, and they seem to be perking up quite a
bit.  All the new growth is staying green, they're getting taller, and none
of the leaves have withered, so it looks like it was a nutrient deficiency.

And now I have another question:)  When potting up determinate tomatoes, do
you remove a few of the bottom branches and pot more deeply?  I've always
done this with indeterminates with great results, but I'm wondering if I'm
losing too much potential fruit when I do this with determinates.  Thanks
again for any suggestions.
