More suburban homesteading scenes

Lawrence is convinced that we must evenly divide the one ripe tomato that we've got so far, even though it's a grape tomato just one inch across.  The plant has about fifty thousand tomatoes on it.  I'm wondering how many will ripen simultaneously so that I can actually make a dish with them.
This plant has so many jalapenos on it that it fell over from the weight of them.
There's a veritable sea of basil out there...
...on the ground and in the basil pot. 
More than we could ever eat.
You can see how dry it is,
here in Texas' worst drought in more than 50 years.
Lantana doesn't mind the drought.
Some nascent sunflowers in a field of onions and garlic.  Not sure if they'll develop in this kind of planting arrangement, but worth a try.
