buckets, so I can set them in full sunlight if that might be better. They
about 7 to 8 hours of full sun where they are and then shaded sun the rest
the day.

Michael, where do you live? If you're in Minnesota "full sun" is different
than it is in Mississippi, for example! In hot climates, tomatoes appreciate
some shade in the afternoon. Especially if they are in containers.

It's not bad for your plants to be so's their nature to grow that
tall. As long as they aren't spindly from lack of light (and I don't think
so, since you've said they are producing lots of fruit), you can rest easy I
would think.
