I pruned it. ;)

I steeled my nerves and pruned that tomato plant I've been complaining about. I just cut off everything that didn't have tomatoes on. The pile in front is what I took off:

This is what's left. It's hard to see but there are a LOT of tomatoes in there!

Also, my zucchini is terrifying.

Famous gardening last words:

"Oh, I should plant two zucchini seeds, just in case."

The veg gardens are organic (+/- some traded and bought seeds) so they get nothing but compost and leaves dug in. They got a lot of compost this spring. :)

Shazam: LOL!! True, that is three plants but you can't even see the back one in the photo. Also the tomato plant is two. But they're still huge.

I'm regretting the two zukes this year too. I did have a year once when a plant grew only male flowers so i usually still plant two. They really like where they are this year. I still have two monsters left - any takers? :>
