Tomatoes. I've learned something very useful about tomato plants. To wit, you can fix them with duct tape. I honestly thought I had killed the biggest, bushiest tomato in my patch when I got overenthusiastic with the trellis and snapped the main stem, all but a little strip on the side that remained attached. In desperation more than anything, I stuck the stem back together and wrapped it in duct tape. A week later, the plant's looking as good as ever.

The corn's topped out at 2-3 feet, and one of them's actually forming an ear. Since I didn't plant dwarf corn, my guess is either the weather or I really need to compost.
