The Tomatoes Take Over!

It's official -- the tomatoes have taken over the patio!  Boy, are they big!  If you recall, here's how it all started back in March:

And here's what it looks like today:

The "Mr. Stripey" variety -- the one I'm most excited about -- currently looks like this:

I'm curious to see how much larger this variety will get, and how it will look when it gets ripe.  Should be very interesting!  The other two varieties are growing like gangbusters, so much so that I think I'm going to be sharing a lot of tomatoes with the neighbors:

I lost one pot -- the "Brandywine" type.  Before I could stake it, it fell over and broke in half.  :(  Bummer, but frankly, we've already got more tomatoes than we can eat.

It's funny to me that I get so excited about growing my own food, but I do.  There's something very satisfying about it.  Next year, we may need to plant an honest-to-goodness garden, with lots of different veggies.  Wonder if the hubs will go for it?
