Some photos of the garden today. We have so far harvested cucumber, lettuce, beans and zucchini.

I think the spinach has gone to seed already. I've never grown it before.

Two shots of the veggie garden, one at the start of the season and the other as it got crowded, about 6 weeks later.
I have a sfg also and next year I plan to give them more space. Don't feel bad at least you have some dirt showing in your garden Mine is pure dark green jungle

Great pics...silly question. How do you like using the plastic and how do you get water to your plants?

I too was wondering about the plastic. I am just not sure if that is what I want to try, but certainly I will do something.

The plastic is wonderful for keeping the weeds at bay. It's slightly porous so water can seep into the ground. I have had no issues with watering the plants.

Djuna, Looking really good.. I wish if I have more space.

Agreed on the SFG, I will have more space specially for tomatoes, I have a mental map on how my patio will look like next year. Have to draw it on paper before I forget it.

I lay in bed sometimes in the middle of the night deciding what I will do next year. Of course when winter comes I put the garden out of my mind and then about late Feb or early Mar after our Feb vacation is starts to become a reality again.

I planted my small garden Memorial Day, due to a cold spring, and now the weather has warmed and it seems to be doing well. It's in a raised bed with an automatic irrigation system. Picked zucchini, snow peas, snap beans already and waiting on the tomatoes, peppers and squash to get ripe.
