Ditto here, as well! More garden, less return.

We're having trouble with our tomatos, but the peppers have been good though. They're really starting to come in now.

We've got a poblano plant with some small peppers on it, and the darned thing must be getting close to 4ft tall!

I can't complain though, we're getting more than enough stuff out of the garden to call it another worthwhile planting this year.

Yeah my tomatoes are not doing all that well either John. Good thing I planted 18 tomato plants. A few died, some are not producing, but the ones that are seem to be making up for the others.

Never mind the fruit, watch the flowers!!!

The pollination comes from the flowers - on a Habanero plant, they're rated XXX! in Scoville Units.
