Fall Garden 2011 Update No. 1

As you may remember, I started my fall garden a few weeks ago.

Only the squash and squash like plants came in.
It was too hot for lots of the seedlings.
I knew I was taking a risk planting everything at once, but I thought I'd see what happens...

The grass came back even though we rototilled, killed and pulled lots of it.
The Cucumber, Zucchini, Butternut Squash, 1 leek, 1 bell pepper, 
Quinoa and Pumpkin plants are alive and well. 

We also have a crazy influx of bees, like 20-30 right now!
Can you see one almost dead center in the photo above?  Sorry, camera phones don't do them justice!
I've focused on this one for you {above}
