How does your garden grow?

I've been slaving over my square foot garden, well not really. I planted it, and it grew. I don't even have any weeds. All I have to do is water it, and I really don't even have to do that either. I bought a timer that hooks to the water spigot and then the hose hooks to that. So while I was away playing in Wyoming and Utah my garden was getting all the water it needed for the hot So. California summer.
Last night we partook in the first garden offering, a small but very delicious Japanese Cucumber. It was so wonderful to walk out the door to the garden and pluck it right from the vine as I was making dinner. I can't wait till the rest of the veggies are ready to eat. We have about 7 more cucs, two peppers, 7 tomatoes. We haven't seen any beans, squash, or pumpkin yet but I hope they will soon start too. I have to say that gardening is a lot of fun!
