In the garden

I've been meaning to post some pictures from the garden for, oh, several months now. Here are a few pictures from today. Above and below, this is the flower garden I started this spring.

To give you an idea of how far we've come, this is what the space looked like last summer:

I've got three raised beds this year. There have been successes and failures, as is usually the case in gardening.
I've got lots of these squash below. The kids who sold the starts to me at a farmer's market said they were acorn squash, but they look more like patty pans to me. Either way...
An incomplete list of the produce I'm growing this summer: peas, chard, spinach, zucchini, pumpkins, corn, 5 varieties of tomatoes, potatoes, radishes, strawberries, onions, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage, and green beans. Happy harvesting!

Wow! What a change since we were out there. The garden is beautiful. Yes, those are patty pans. Delicious!
