This is what is growing:
Sun Sugar
Better Bush
Black Krim
Brandywine
Gold Medal
Green Zebra
Kellogs Breakfast
Mortgage Lifter
Orange Strawberry
Sioux

So what the heck is this? pleated on the top and a very "pointy" point on the bottom?

Edited to say, I bet that is Orange Strawberry

That is ONE tomato plant reaching the top of the wall and it has branches going sideways, maybe 4 feet.

Edited to add that this is Gold Medal

Kelloggs Breakfast is in the lower right hand corner. The girls ran out of stakes and it is happy to crawl over the cement walkway.
