How does your garden grow?

We tried our hand at a garden this year. Marc did most (all) of the preliminary work. It rained so much this year we were late getting it started. He tilled the area 4-5 times! Of course, we had to start from scratch. We planted carrots, broccoli, okra, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, purple peas, corn, cantaloupe, and watermelon! We have had success with some things and failures with others. Okra, peas, cucumbers, cantaloupes and watermelon are doing great. We picked our first watermelon today. We weren't really sure when they would be ready. I think that we picked it a little too early, but it still tasted good. We will wait on the next ones a few more days.
