We have already gotten hundreds of pounds of tomatoes from the 12 plants =
I put in.  One of the Italian plum varieties is cranking out so many =
tomatoes, that I fill a large salad bowl with ripe ones just from that =
one plant almost every day.  The grape tomato plant is also very =
prolific, but those tiny tomatoes are a pain to harvest and I probably =
won't put one of those in again next year.  The one zucchini I planted =
is almost as bad - we've been picking a 12-18 inch squash almost every =
other day.  My kids are getting sick of tomatoes and zucchini at every =
meal, so I've had to get creative with recipes - there can be too much =
of a good thing.  I've turned the plum tomatoes into great tomato sauce =
and will try a homemade ketchup recipe next - there is no way we can use =
them all up otherwise.  We live 35 miles south of San Francisco and the =
climate here is ideal for growing tomatoes.  We usually see the first =
ripe ones in June and continue picking well into November or later if =
the weather stays warm.

zara, if youd be so kind as to share the ketchup / catsup recipie with 
us Id appreciate it.  I grew some squash and zuk's once, but I had 
plenty of help eating it as my dragons love it too so it'd never goto 
waste.   Sometimes stuff grows great, other times it's a constant battle 
to get it up and going... glad you are having so much good luck with them.
