The tomato plants are loaded with heavy fruits. Even though they are caged and staked, a couple of them are ready to fall over. They are growing vigorously and are spread out. This season I decided not to prune them like I did last year.
We call this a tomato jungle :)
Pepper plants from last year are yielding. I also bought some new plants.
This year I sowed Okra and Eggplants. Okra plants have started flowering even though the plants are too small. Eggplants are too small, they are growing real slow.
The apple tree has 3 apples and they are of a decent size.

I sowed the seeds in a pot in April and they started coming up in a few days. I transplanted them later and they grew so tall. These plants require full sun and they are a great addition to a garden with a splash of bright colors. So far in my cosmos bed, I see only purple and white flowers. I read that comos flowers attracts butterflies but so far none to be seen :)
