Vegetable Garden Update #WW

This is my first year with a raised bed and vegetables.  I am definitely learning as I go!  We are limited with a rather shady area but the Atlanta heat makes up for some of that.  We had great results with spinach and the kale is still rocking.  The zucchini is coming in like crazy - I picked one that was at least 16 inches long today and 2-3 inches thick.

These honeydew mystery melons grew from my compost and are looking good!

We have several tomato plants, all green right now but about ready to turn into delicious, ripe red tomatoes! I can't wait to make some fresh salsa and salads.

Here's the zucchini growing nicely.

    I LOVE your garden. I've been anxious to start one but we have gophers galore in our neighborhood. :)

    Your garden looks fabulous! I am always in awe of those who can grow their own food! (I kill everything I touch lol)

    Our weather must help. My neighbor has a garden in Acworth and he brings me vegetables weekly. He brought me potatoes, corn and squash last night.

    I am getting tomatoes and hot peppers from my plants but no bell peppers yet.

    Awesome job! I wish I had a spot for a garden in my yard. Too shady though :(

    I miss having a garden. I just attempted some tomato seeds to try in the apartment! It will not be as nice as what you have!

    That is really cool that they grew from your compost.

    Have a great WW!

    Looking good! I can't believe the honeydews are already so big. I just found my first yellow squash this afternoon--hoping for some zucchini soon too!
