What does the term "when the first truss is set" with regard to feeding tomato plants. Is it the first level of flowers or the first fruit showing.



When the first branch of little fruits is visible.

It is when the first fruits 'set' and can be seen as fruits.

Thank you for the answers much appreciated, my wife and I could not agree. Tomato plants about one month ahead of normal years, as is the rest of the garden.
Thanks again
