I keep most of mine cut off above the first blosoms. It's not
going to get as hot so Sun Scald is not a major problem.

This question about one foot spacing brings up another question for me.
Since we've just moved, I wonder if someone can tell me if pruning off
suckers is advisable in mid Hudson area of New York?  In the San Francisco
area, we used to do quite a bit of pruning and got great tomatoes, although
we didn't prune as dramatically as I've seen some intensive gardeners
suggest.  Here, I just don't know what to expect the weather to do, other
than get hot.  Thanks for any advice.
