The Garden as of Mid-August

Continuing to chronicle the first garden we have ever had -- since we used to live in NYC and had concrete and trash cans and a stoop where a yard should be.

Above: the first of our three raised beds filled with compost. We have zucchini, tomatoes and (obscured by zucchini) cucumbers.

Turnips, chard, lettuce, watermelon, cantaloupe, carrots and some mixed salad greens.

Growing up the large right homemade trestle are beans, in the back on the store-bought trestle are blackeyed Susans. In the middle: okra, peppers, eggplant and strawberries. The red bean blooms are VERY popular with bumblebees and hummingbirds.

You don't have deer around who eat everything that doesn't have a 10-foot fence surrounding it?
