However, the three small cherry tomato plants that I started (as a bit of an experiment versus regular flowers) next to our front porch have quite literally taken over. It makes me wish I'd taken a time-lapse video (and not just crappy iPhone pictures).
Insane. Over. Under. Through. Everything. The thing currently is that they're still bearing fruit, so we don't feel right just pulling them out if we can still harvest from them. I only wish I LIKED tomatoes! (My husband and the baby do, as do our parents and neighbors, so at least we've got options.)
I'm telling you, though, if it's still going strong after a few more weeks, I may do some clipping, if not PULLING. Then, it's "say hello to my little mums."
Next year, I may put some herbs there, since my planters on the deck also failed to do much.
How about you? How does (did?) your garden grow? Does it embarrass you like ours? Seriously, what must our mail carrier (not to mention the neighbors) think?!
