Welcome to My Jungle

Who would have thought 7 weeks ago, that this humble boxed garden with its new soil...

...would become such a jungle.

Or this newly planted herb garden...

would explode into this...

And silly me for worrying that I didn't know how to weave the cantaloupe vines...

...they practically do it themselves.

And my raspberries that I bought at a yard sale last summer...

...love their new location.

Somewhere in this mess are tomato plants, green beans and pepper plants.

Not for one second since May, have I regretted replacing the old soil with the new mix. I think my garden loves me for it...and the record amounts of rain that we have had is certainly helping.

How is your garden doing this summer? Let us know in the comments.
