Our garden has been amazing this year. Not only did our corn actually produce a couple dozen good bug-free ears, but the solitary pie pumpkin plant has produced 30 lbs of pumpkins so far, with at least twice that much still ripening on the vine. Plus the canteloupe just produced it's first ripe melon today and they are terrific. My only fear is that we will get so many at once that we can't eat them all. Our brocolli also continues to produce along with more tomatoes than we need, and we just planted a new crop of peas with should be ready before the weather turns too cold.
My veggie garden is only 15' x 15' but it's way more than my family of 3 can keep up with. We have 3 tomato plants, asparagus, green beens, peppers, squash, spinach, carrots, radishes, sweet potatoes, eggplant and still only use about 75% of the space. Anyone interested in a small garden should research the "square foot" gardening method.
