the vegetable garden's progress

Here are some photos of the backyard vegetable garden, from 3 weeks ago, and from 2 days ago.

The garden on May 20, about 3 weeks after planting it, all from starts. For the first time this year we found sweet corn seedlings to transplant, at Home Despot. The only thing there growing from seeds is the peas.

The garden on June 5. The stuff has just exploded, I had to stake all of the tomato plants, even the so-called shrub varieties.

The miniature roma-type grape tomatoes, on May 20 this was our only bunch. The largest tomato was about the size of a small grape.

On June 5, this whas the same cluster looked like, about triple in size. the largest (top) tomato is about 2 inches long and 1 inch in diameter (about 1/3 the size of a standard roma tomato). Oh, did I mention they haven't started changing colors yet? These were supposed to be small tomatoes - not that I'm complaining, more like shocked.
