Putting in the Garden

The garden is finally 100% planted.  Last month I planted the tomatoes, cauliflower, watermelon and some carrot seeds.  Everything except the carrots were planted indoors before hand.
The carrots didn't end up sprouting...  I think 2 factors played into that: 1) It has been very dry and hot 2) The seeds were a year old.  I don't think the dog played a part in it...
But who knows!  haha  There are reasons why I put a fence around the garden...and this is one!  Last year I put up a green mesh fence that was not very pretty.  This year I used 4 posts and some yarn.  It won't keep out the rabbits and deer, but they weren't an issue last year, so I guess we will see.
Here are the watermelon hills.

 And here is the entire garden.  You can barely see the red yarn.  Where the carrots used to be, I planted zucchini.  In the far right row I planted cucumbers.

 We have a few trees growing in the planters.
I am sure that the garden would have looked better watered, but this is the best I can do for now  :)  It is representative of the 90+ degree weather we have been having as of late.

Hopefully rain is coming soon...I am sure watering every morning will get old...
