Pruning some leaves from tomato plants
I understand that to increase the production and quality of tomatoes, it's a good idea to remove some of the lower leaves from the plants. If so - which leaves should be removed?

It's not really necessary to do this, but some gardeners remove all the leaves on the lower 8 to 10 inches of the plant to increase air circulation around the plant. This does not increase productivity, but can help prevent disease if you live in a really moist climate.
