Week 3 - Nothing is dead!

Over the course of the week we dug out the back grass, and made a bed running down the side to plant watermelon, honeydew melon and another pumpkin. We're also trying catnip again, not sure if it is going to survive the neighborhood cats.

The garden has only been planted for a week and already we're starting to see some changes. We got the first tomato blossoms, the zucchini's look like they have almost doubled in size and there is a single almost ripe strawberry.

We have been watering it almost every day at this point and will continue to do so while it is sunny and hot. Everything seems to be taking pretty well to all the moving about, I am going to have to start thinning out the radishes, onions, carrots and beets soon as we planted them in clumps and that probably wasn't what we were supposed to do. I am waiting for them to be secure before I start ripping them out.
