It's coming along nicely. We have gotten a ton of zucchini and a few cucumbers. When the tomatoes are ripe we're going to be swimming in them. We actually have a volunteer tomato plant that came up no where near the others. I'm assuming it was a seed in the bean seeds and starting growing. That or it was a seen in the compost we got for the garden. It actually has a tomato on it. And to think I almost picked it thinking it was a weed at one point. I have no idea how to can, but hopefully I can learn and actually can some of the tomatoes we're going to be getting. We have several watermelons and one really big one that we hope we get to eat. I've heard they are hard to grow and they can slit open before you know it. We're going to be very disappointed if that happens. We plan on building another box next year. If for no other reason, to plant all the "vine" plants in it. Between the watermelon and cucumbers, you can't see the other plants. The beans, peppers, onions, and asparagus are all hidden. Which means they probably aren't getting enough sun and will die or something. Oh well, trial and error. I think it's a good garden for a starter garden.
