City Garden update

It's been awhile since we updated you on our city garden. Below is a video update. You will see the tomato plants are huge. We've been getting a ton of plum tomatoes and are saving them for tomato sauce. The other two tomato plants are growing (you'll the ridiculous size in the video), but no tomatoes yet. There been flowers, but no fruit. The same thing happened last year and not sure what the problem is at this point. One of the tomato plants was attacked by hornworm caterpillars, which are some of the ugliest things you'll ever see. It has since recovered, but might be too late to get fruit. The baby pepper plant has been sprouting some nice peppers. The asparagus beans have grown nicely, but we probably will not grow again. Tastier options.
