Oh my, how our garden grew!

This summer we planted a garden. We planted peppers and corn, broccoli and kohlrabi, peas and carrots on a sunny plot in the southern section of Grand Forks. When we first planted all of the little plants, we weren't too confident they would survive. It was a cool spring. The plants didn't look so good. But then, about a month in to our garden project, things really sprung up! Soon we were up to our elbows in peas and green beans. The tomatoes are all starting to ripen now, and soon we should have lots of squash, pumpkins and watermelon.  
 
Now as summer is coming to a close, here's a look back on our garden ::  
 
The first week, back in mid-May, when Matt and Kory planted everything ::
I kept these boots in my car for random trips out to the garden ::
The garden, mid-July ::
Some of our first veggies were peppers ::
And onions ::
And kohlrabi ::
Yum!
Here are some photos I shot today ::  
Still more peppers!
The corn is almost ready!
Watermelons on the grow!
Fresh-picked carrots ::
Cantaloupe (or muskmelon) ::
A baby pumpkin ::
And a huge pumpkin (hanging off of a tomato stand -- those pumpkin vines grow everywhere!) ::
You can see, pumpkins are everywhere!
OK, this is not in our garden, but in the neighbor's. I love how cool cabbage looks!
