garden out of control...tomatoes anyone?

I seriously have no idea how 2 small cherry tomato plants have grown in to a structure of their own.  I couldn't describe this any better so I thought I would post a few pictures.  Since I took the picture they have now grown on the top of the deck, literally.  They have managed to squeeze out all of my herbs and yellow squash, although we were able to get at least 4 or 5 huge squash before the plant died.  My green peppers have survived and are now starting to produce (in August), you can see them squeezing their way in on the right side of the tomatoes and my large tomatoes are starting to produce on the left side of the cherry tomatoes where the zucchini squash live.  Also since the picture, which was less than 2 weeks ago, we have lost the smaller of zucchini plants. I have a GREAT old recipe for zucchini bread that I'll be posting soon.

Happy Friday and I hope you enjoy your weekend!!! I'll be taming my out of control garden, for sure!

Here's a great idea... I would love to jump into a pile of rock pillows.  How much fun does this look like?

...this cottage is absolutely lovely.  It has so much charm and sophistication. The shabby chic decor with a Victorian charm. What a magical place for a child to play...or an adult :)
