What's Growin' On?

The Invasion of the Garden Plot. It eats lawn alive!
I've been so busy working in the garden, that I haven't had a lot of time to chronicle what is going on in the garden. Above, you see one quarter of our backyard and only 1/8 is being utilized for growing, but we hope that will evolve into the entire quarter as summer proceeds. It's a big step up from our tiny little corner last year that was only about 20'x20', but we hope to grow it even bigger next year. Anyway, below you will find some snapshots of what's growing so far. We still have a ton of seeds to plant, as the odd weather this year has put us behind schedule.

Early Girl Hybrid, since the heirlooms are so slow to grow.
Gold Yukon Potatoes. Lee's favorite.
Mystery volunteer squash or pumpkin? 
Various peas and Mary Washington Asparagus.
Sunflowers. The bees love 'em.
The salad box. Randomly sown salad greens of all sorts.
The mini corn field.
