I have to say, this garden is awesome! I haven't gotten many fruits yet, but the plants are huge! And, the herbs are killlllin it! So much so, that I had to utilize them in a meal the other night. I picked up some zuchinni, a bell pepper, one jalepeno and an onion. I joined those up with some mock abalone and brown rice, and it was pretty amazing:

I'll take a photo of my pepper technique another time, but basically get a steel pan hot hot hot with a good coating of Grape Seed oil. Then, put in the peppers..Let them cook! I mean cook! It's extra fantastic if they burn a little bit, imparts a superb roasted pepper flavor! When they are nice and done throw in the Mock Meat and garlic. *oh, there is a sprinkling of cashews, too!
NOW, the Garden update.
Tomato plants: 5ft tall!
That's tall! ...in fact I'm having to tie them to neighboring cages:
I used a weed vine to secure it.
The tomato plants have gotten so big that they've been starving my favorite bell pepper plants of all sunlight. So, I moved them. Dug it up, and replanted. I will be very sad if I don't get any Chocolate or Purple Beauties this year!
