Unfortunately, the front row (closest to you in the photo) didn't hold up as well as the remaining three rows. The beans didn't do so well, but the fennel and kale is doing great. There's garlic in there too, but I'm skeptical of it.

The corn, specifically 72 stalks of corn, are doing very well. We planted them in the furthest row from the house last year, and the squirrels had a hay day stealing the beautiful ears of corn. The neighbors delighted in the show, but I've almost got myself convinced to buy an airgun to shoot the critters off my corn. Chris has said he's down with trying squirrel stew, so they had better look out! The corn is planted just outside my office window this year, so the squirrels can either get super brave or I can pick them off at close range.

The grape trellis is looking amazing and I still can't believe we built it ourselves. I'd like to paint it, but I suspect I'll have to wait until fall or spring. I am happy to say we have our first bunches of grapes coming in, although there are only 2 bunches, and they're only coming in on the east-facing vine.
