It's like benevolent aliens came while I was out of town and snatched up my baby plants and replaced them with giant alien plants that nevertheless produce the expected fruits. I went to look at them the evening I got back and about fell over from shock. There's freakin' jalapenos on those suckers! There were no jalapenos when I left. There's about a billion cherry tomatoes and a ton of big tomatoes. And there's like eight zucchinis. No matter what angle I tried, the zucchinis look...difficult. Okay, phallic. So no pictures of zucchinis. And I made some grievous miscalculations about the size of your average zucchini plant, so no bell peppers either. But here's cherries:
