How Does Your Garden Grow? July 1st

July 1st: We have been short on rain lately, but the garden is coming along alright.  Thing have been busy so I haven't gotten all of what I had hoped planted, but I have gotten the most important things in.
I realize that it is a little hard to read the words on my drawing.  Here's what's in each quadrant.

Quadrant 1: Peas, cucumber, dill, green beans, yellow wax beans, cauliflower, broccoli, cantaloupe,

Quadrant 2: Sweet peppers, green bell peppers, banana peppers, zucchini, summer squash, acorn squash, carrots, onions, lettuce, spinach, slicing and cherry tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, San Marzano tomatoes, onions and carrots

Quadrant 3: Corn with beans

Quadrant 4: Potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, watermelon.
