Trusses on sweet million tomato plants keep producing flowers

Hello, some of the trusses one of my sweet million tomato plants keep branching out and producing more and more flowers. There are now 100's of flowers per truss. Should I start pinching out the tips of the trusses? Only one plant is doing this - is this unusual? Thank you!

    hi and welcome to the Forum. 
    the clue is in the name "sweet million" I'd just let them do their thing.

    Thanks for the replies. I was expecting masses of tomatoes but not this many!

    Sweet millions ...just for once the name might be really apt 😂

    I'd remove some of the lower leaves to allow air and light around the developing fruit

    The leaves don't look in great shape. Are you watering every day and feeding often?

    I'm watering every 3 days or so and feeding every 9 days.

    Twice a day in hot weather is what's needed
