Our garden has been in the ground for a week now, so I thought it was time for a status update.
In general, things are looking pretty good. 1 watermelon plant is dead, our squash have come up, and 2 of my pepper plants are looking sickly..but its early, so I can always replant if needed.
The other addition I've made is a fence. Some of our friends with dogs live in apartments (my wife is in school), so we make it a point to invite friends and their dogs over to take advantage of our big backyard. Unfortunately, not all of those dogs respect the garden like our dog does, so if I want to avoid my plants being chewed on, peed and pooped on, or dug up...I have to have a fence.
Alright, enough chatter, its picture time.

My squash poking their little heads out:
My 4 watermelon plants (3 looking good, one with no leaves left):
My pepper plants, showing the contrast between a healthy and sickly plant.
Next update will be about our potted herbs and strawberries and how we set up our pots this year.
