3 cherry tomatoes and 11 cucumbers later ..
The planter looks like this ..
Pickling Cucumbers have taken over the planter. I need to find ways to reduce the leaves on those cucumber plants. Its shading everything. Peppers are not doing well. Only one fruit set in on the green pepper. (not enough sun for those). about 50-80 tomatoes on the roma plant (determinate). (still small though, probably will need another 3 weeks to ripen. Cherry tomato has about 40 on it. (indeterminate) .. but they are not ripe either. Eggplant has nice fruit on it. (not ready to be picked either ..) herbs are doing great and keeping pace with what we use
So all in all, I am extremely happy with how this first time gardening turned out. Thanks to those that have directly answered my questions and raybo and tapla for the knowledge they have shared on these forums
