My 3,000 sq. ft. urban garden which covers my entire 50x60 backyard has come along nicely. There are now approximately 2,000 plants in various stages of maturity.

So.... In the foreground are 100 potato eyes, 15 tomato plants, 2 brussel sprouts, 2 peppers, 16 okra, 40 blue lake green beans. The round spot in the back is a pond which has attracted blue dragon flies.
Here you see lots of vegetable plants--e.g., corn, peanuts, tomatoes, potatoes, beans of all sorts, squash-pumpkin-muskmelon-watermelon plants, lettuce, broccoli, caulflower, cabbage, kohlradi, and lots more. That's a pond, true. With dragonflies. Those are picklebush starting up in front, cucumbers on the left side, and peanuts behind.
