The Monstrosity in the Garden

I am referring of course to this;
This is a wild amalgamation of the grape vine and pole beans with a few morning glories who crept in when I wasn't paying attention.

 A combination of this years heat and wet weather contributed to the grape vines growth spurt. And it has been severely pruned twice this summer- just think where it would be if it hadn't. 
At least the beans have finally started flowering. 
You can see the bean blossoms superimposed on a morning glory. 
The morning glory is also snaking along the ground too. The petunias are almost the same purple as the morning glory.

Roma VFs are Wimps

Of all the tomatillo varieties in my garden, they are the only ones with blossom end rot.
