Reader Garden: Kelly's Lime, Zucchini, and Beaglador

Yesterday we asked for photos and stories of your gardens. Here's our first submission, from reader Kelly. She says:

I had two new "firsts" this year: I planted my first garden; I got my first puppy. This is not a good combination.

In spite of my inexperience and Jack the beaglador's enthusiastic interest, the zucchini prevails – a lone plant is thriving amid the chaos. Above is a picture which, unfortunately, doesn't show the blossoms. I swear they're under there, though. I also have a lime tree in a big pot that is finally beginning to produce blooms (after two years). I'm very optimistic that mojitos are in my near future.
The convergence of events in Kelly's life is chronicled here:
