A garden request

The lovely Akiko White (who makes amazing cakelustrations; check out her site, you'll know what I mean) asked for photos of our garden, so this is for her. :)

Some random pics of the garden:
he south garden, just outside of the main fenced garden where comfrey, squash, watermelons, and cukes are grown (a small fenced area at the end has tomatoes and eggplants)

Inside main garden, the south strip...

the middle strip of the main garden is a bit of a jungle-y mess right now; the kale is sporting a Tina Turner look...

the north strip of the main garden

a panorama taken against the north side of the main garden; the empty beds await fall crops planting

inside the greenhouse where the malabar spinach is taking over; the front eggplant has died back, but the ones behind it are still going strong, trying to hold their own against the malabor spinach

There's a north garden outside the main garden area but there's not much in there aside from a bed of sweet potatoes mowed down by the deer. And we have various fruit trees spread out all around the property. It's a lot to take care of; kudos to hubby and the boys for keeping on top of things.
