2013 Garden, Part 3- First Harvest!

I hate to brag, but our garden is looking great so far!  We've had to spray for squash bugs and the grasshoppers really like our potatoes, but everything is still in good shape.  It's amazing how fast everything is growing right now.  These first 2 pictures were taken just 4 days apart.

Here's some closer pictures of a few "zones" of our garden.
Squash family rows- (near to far) zucchini, yellow squash, watermelon, spaghetti squash, honeydew, cucumbers, cantaloupe, pumpkin
Corn rows
Tomatoes before support
Tomatoes with support- we're trying a new system this year with t-posts and fencing material.  Last year all of our tomato cages ended up on the ground because our plants got too big.
First harvest!!  Yellow squash, zucchini, yellow potatoes, red potatoes, purple potatoes.  We chopped these up, put them on skewers, and grilled them with some chicken.  So yummy!
I don't show this view of the garden very often.  You can see our rain collection system and our shop in the back.  The garden is about 60'x30' for those of you who have asked.
