From those of us who live too far north to have tomatoes yet, thank you.

They are vines, they will spread. I tie mine up to stakes when they are just kids. Toward the end of the season I cut the vines back or they'll put all their remaining energy into growing even taller and wider.

Yes too late for cages. I've been tying them off. Many many stakes in the ground

This is Exactly the situation I am in. It's bitter sweet. The pepper plants are tiny due to lack of sunlight and these tomato plants have taken overs
