Garden on the Deck: Tomato Plant Jungle

Tomato Flower, taken 6/14/09.
This sweet little thing is one of the first flowers to pop out on the German Strawberry tomato plant. Very cool. (I feel like a little kid who got her science experiment to work.) Flowers mean fruit!!

Even more wild is the tomato plant jungle taking over the back porch (below). The Sungella is on the left (it's by far the biggest), and the German Red Strawberry & Pale Perfect Purple are on the right. The remaining 4 are mini, in comparison; but I'm planning to boost their growth with a layer or two of the kick-ass organic soil that sent these first three sky-high.
