Garden of Eatin'

So, as most of you should know, I'm a Chinquapin community gardener as of March of this year.  I've been on the waiting list for years (literally. It's been 5 years) so I was excited to get a plot.  The plots are good sized.  They are approximately 15 feet by 20 feet.  Needless to say, I've taken my time to fill the plot with vegetables, partly because we had a cold spring.  Some of my plants are doing better than others and I've found that part of the garden drains into my plot which is a bit of a problem, but my lettuce seem to thrive on being "swamp" lettuce so there's that.  I'm a little nervous about this summer.  We're already going to get "slop" from the first Tropical Storm of the season and I'm a little worried about my garden's ability to drain itself.  But they are plants and it is Virginia where everything that can, will grow.

Tomatoes.  There's three tomatoes on the closest plant.

Summer Squash, peppers and Brussel Sprouts.  the makeshift net is my peas and beans.

I'm so jealous! I have several tomato plants in, but so far, no buds on anything. They are getting tall, but no fruit! This stresses me out greatly for a project that was supposed to help me de-stress!
If it ever stops raining out there I plan to take some pictures of my strange gardening efforts and blog about it. Someday.
