Here is what my garden looked like just a few weeks ago. Things were starting to look like real vegetable plants. The plants were getting buds and just starting to grow the first signs of fruit. I felt that my plants have done very well for this being my first attempt at gardening. I definitely planted them too close together, and now the larger plants are blocking the sun from the smaller ones. Next year I will plant only one row of plants in the center of each bed. I think that will be much more successful.
