Tomato Update

Yesterday, I finished my support for the vertical tomatoes (Big Beef Hybrid and Early Girl Hybrid), pinched off some of the suckers, and got them on the string - they are now ready to go vertical!  I also sucked the bucket tomatoes though I haven't got them strung up yet.  The Topsy Turvy (which has a Roma tomato in I think) is also doing well.  Heck, they're all doing well!  Here are a few pictures:

Tomatoes on the completed string trellis - 2 Big Beef Hybrid and 3 Early Girl Hybrid, plus two bush style Celebrity tomates (small cages on the right).  This garden also has a couple bell peppers, eggplant, and various herbs and flowers.

Bucket Tomatoes (Supersweet 100)

Topsy Turvy (Roma) tomato.  Leaves went back towards the sun after a day or two of being upside down.

 Zucchini Update

The zucchini is loving life right now. I planted the zucchini seedlings about 16 days ago after purchasing them at the Farmers Market.  These are "Black Beautiy" plants, which I don't know much about, but they're growing fast, take a look:
