yesterday and today, hubs and i built trellises for the cucumbers and squash from old lumber and chicken wire. i planted everything except for the tomatoes and watermelon. you can see the lettuce doing nicely in the center; the carrots and beets are up, the beans are also planted. i've put basil in the small square pots at the back.
here's a garden-level view from the gate, showing the trellises on the seed mounds.
