Garden Update

This is a picture of my tomato vines. There are three of them and I have them growing on a fence so they will grow up instead of spreading out on the ground. I thought this would make picking easier. The fence is 4 foot tall and the tomato vines are to toe top already. I don't know where I will go from here. They took a beating during that hail storm we had a few weeks ago, but as you can see they have bounced back with a vengeance. All the tomatoes that were on the vines at the time of the storm were destroyed but I have plenty of blooms and little tomatoes now.
This is the end of the garden where I have my black-eye peas planted.They are beginning to send out runners and I am training them to climb the fence.
This picture shows my pepper plants, and the new lettuce that I planted about 2 weeks ago. Also, the soaker hose watering system. I have it on a timer at the faucet so it will water everything for me, even if I am not home.
My egg plants are doing good. they have a lot of blooms and a few small egg plants on them already. These are the long skinny variety that my husband likes cooked on the grill.
