Tomato gone mad in greenhouse

Hi i have 5 tomato ants in the ground in the greenhouse. All was well and good then went on holiday for a fortnight. Had neighbours watering the greenhouse for me kindly. Have come home and the tomatoes have gone mad and are now touching the top of tbe roof, really overgrown , lots of flowers , some actual fruit , but lots of foliage. What should i do? Should i cut them back a little or just let them be. First year with a greenhouse so advice mu h appreciated.

    If they were bush types they wouldn't be up to the top of the greenhouse. They stay shorter and branching.

  • Do you know what? I have let a couple of mine go (a bit) - trimmed off the suckers that grow between branches but let a couple of plants have their head (so to speak) and there is a good crop a ripening in there!
