How does your garden grow?

I'll tell you how it doesn't grow. It doesn't grow in the soil around our house, that is for sure. The garden we put in last year was a failure except for a few green peppers and a couple of okra. This year I put together a raised bed garden and put in a combination of top soil and organic potting soil from Lowe's. The bed was a gift from the One Big Loud Guy's father. He ordered one and he was sent to and he told Chris I could have the extra one. It sure was easier than the amateur carpentry I was contemplating. We have planted about four different kinds of tomatoes, squash, cucumber and okra. Is it too late to plant some beans?

Here is a view of the raised bed garden with the sunflowers in the foreground. It's growing pretty good.

Melanie is pointing at something in the picture above. Here is what she is point at, a cluster of cherry tomatoes. So far this garden is already looking so much better than last year's fiasco.
