Look at all this beautiful food! Lots of zucchini, peter pan squash, summer squash, radishes, a cucumber and one cherry tomato. There were actually two, but I ate one before I took the picture.

The Kentucky Pole beans are really growing.

This Sundance summer squash has half a dozen little squashes on it, and I am sure there will be a lot more to come.

The garden guardian, Mercedes, watching me work. She lays in the shade of the tree while I sweat in the sun. However, her real job is at night. She keeps the deer out of the garden. The first night after we planted I found deer prints in the garden; luckily nothing had been eaten. Since then, I have left Mercedes to sleep outside overnight and no new prints have appeared. Yay for big dogs!

Of course the zucchini is growing the best. It will probably take over the garden and maybe even the whole 1/2 acre yard!
Kentucky Wonder pole beans. Planted on June 27th. They have grown over two inches in less than two days.

Peppers (purple, yellow, red and green) and tomatoes (Celebrity, DX52-12, Sweet 100, and Roma). You can also see a few of the pumpkins to the right. We transplanted most of this on June 23 and 24. Just beyond the tomatoes are the beans and then all the way back are two Big Mac pumpkins. We'll see if we can really get them up to 100 pounds!
