Its a Jungle Out There

We've got a jungle growing in our back yard. 
Somehow as first year gardeners we have a garden explosion on our hands. 
So far we have enjoyed lots of spinach and lettuce, basil, dill, cilantro, a few tomatoes, and one harvest of green beans. 
Want to know our trick? 
Plant late and use old seeds. 
Seriously, I think that it is a combo of the city compost and the ideal growing conditions, hot and wet. 
I am just hoping we can have the same success next time around.
We also had a few surprises pop up in the garden.
Yes, they come equipped with solar lights.
Thanks to our neighbor, we have some well-lit garden guardians.

Your garden looks so great. I wish our dill and basil did as well as yours.
