Crazy Tomatoes

Memorial Day weekend I built this raised bed along the alley. The weekend after that, I had the compost guy bring 3 cubic yards of compost to fill it. The weekend after that, I transplanted five rose bushes into the bed. About 2 or 3 weeks after that, I thought, "Hell, I'll plant some tomatoes. Maybe some sunflowers."

I'm scared of these tomatoes. Those bamboo hoops are about 3 1/2 feet tall. Now if they only get ripe...

Also notice the Louise Odier rose doing its thing (Bourbon, 1851). When it was on the east side of the house, it bloomed once in June and that was it.
