I found some tomato plants growing wild in my back yard in February. I transplanted them to a safer location, and now one of them is about five feet tall (and going). Help me identify the tomato variety? [more inside]

What are a few strange or exotic vegetables/herbs/fruit that I can plant in my new garden?

Just shoveled out a new garden 2 weeks ago. Put some tomatoes and peppers seedlings in, and already have some baby pepper and tomato plant is flowering well. Looking for strange or exotic veggies or herbs I can put into the remaining space. This east facing plot probably gets 4-6 hours of direct sun (more once we get further into summer). I live coastal in San Diego, so it would be zone 10. It also never get's hotter than 90F, and never below 32F. Very dry, so low water plants are a plus, but I dont mind watering a small area often. I have no preference starting from seed or seedling, so either one works.

No, not the band.

Vegetable gardener living in SoCal (zone 9) wants to try growing black-eyed peas (cowpeas) in big raised beds in the backyard this summer. Problem: being Yankee-born and raised, I have never grown, eaten, nor even seen black-eyed peas before, on the vine or off. Suggestions for backyard-worthy varieties, gardening tips, companion planting possibilities, and authentic recipes desired.

So you'd like to build a garden wall...

Is there an 'ask metafilter' on the internet for home/yard projects? Not that I'm disputing the collective mind here, but I'm looking to build something in my backyard and it seems to me there must be some group of contractors who all get together somewhere on the internet to tell amateurs that they're doing it wrong. Of course if you KNOW how to install a yard retaining wall, then, by all means, speak up. [more inside]
