Garden tour - mid-summer look at the vegetable beds

Raised beds in the front yard growing tomatoes, string beans, soy beans, watermelon, basil, carrots, collards and peppers

We are mid-summer now and the heat is really kicking in making all the summer vegetables go through a growth spurt.  The garden is looking a bit like a jungle after lots of rain because of thunderstorms, and it's exciting to see the progress everyday.  Soon it will be a challenge to keep up with the harvest, so I am just enjoying the lushness of everything for the moment  I hope you enjoy the quick tour.

Strawberry beds and a view of the bamboo poles with Lima bean and Asian long bean vines in the next bed

A bed along the fence with asparagus going to seed, zucchini and patty pan squash, cantaloupe and a few sunflowers peeking over the edge.  The peas had been growing on the frames in the back, but soon the melons and squash will be climbing all over them.
