After the Storm

Fortunately enough, apart from a few broken branches and a dozen of lost flowers and fruits, most of my balcony plants seem to be more or less o.k.! I have tied and splinted my cherry tomatoes as best as I could, but it's a jungle on my balcony and it's pretty hard for me to provide them the support they need to produce optimally.
The corners of my balcony garden(where the tomatoes grow) are somewhat overcrowded and in spite all of my efforts(pruning, staking and tying) I have to deal with a real urban jungle environment.

Take a look!

Hmm sorry, here's the other angle! Isn't it a real urban tomato jungle!?

Here are a few examples of what I have to do to keep my plants supported. It's not a pretty sight, but it will do it job for the time being. After all, it's all about the homegrown!

Wow, your tomato jungle certainly looks very fertile. It's too late for me to start growing vegetables on my two tiny (one in shade, one sunlit) balconies this year, but your blog has inspired me to start my own production next year.

Meanwhile I'm waiting for the Stevia seeds to arrive from Germany…

Hey Klaus,
I'm glad to hear that you are inspired to grow your own homegrown veggies and the same goes for the Stevia seeds you're waiting to arrive.
Keep on growing!
