Attack of the Killer Peppers

I really don't have enough experience with gardening to know how unusual this is, but my tiny little garden is reaching gargantuan proportions. The tomato plant (yes its a single plant) in the back is taller than my fence and taller than me. The silver thing in the picture is a yard stick to give you an idea. This morning I looked out and saw a cardinal perched in one of my pepper plants - is that normal?

Unfortunately there are only a couple tomatoes on the vine right now. The peppers however are coming in quite strong, with cayanne and habenero representing hard core. I'll have quite a bit of pickling to do soon.
