I bought a kit and planted seeds. There is a mixture of varieties it said. The plants are now about 18 inches high. While I recognise the sweet pea leaves that have all the little tendrills, there are plants growing that I cannot recognise and I am concerned that these might not be sweetpeas at all. The leaves are totally different as you can see from my photographs.

Well, you have a few sweet peas-- the things with skinny winding tendrils trying to grab things.

Tomatoes are 'monster' plants that needs a BIG pot (or planted in ground) to really do anything.

Pisum sativum ( English pea/garden pea) does not do well in hot weather. The sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a beautiful flower but is poisonous. Please do not confuse them. You do have a nice stand of tomato plants but you need to separate them to get nice tomatoes. They are big plants that need space.
