Garden - end of June 2014

I have to say I am well pleased with the garden this year.  Such an improvement over last year.  We've added multiple raised beds where before it was just one large slightly raised bed.  Here are some pictures.  The tomatoes are doing very well, as is the lettuce, even if we do have a slight slug problem .. ugh!

The beans just don't seem to be germinating very well, I keep having to replant .. and the peas are a bit .. well, weird, they just aren't growing well .. but anyway .. I'm still VERY pleased .. the tomatoes look divine! :)  Cant' wait to start getting tomatoes :)  No more purchased canned tomatoes for me!  Not this year!

 See ! ? ! ? !

Below is a mystery plant .. not sure what it is.  It's a volunteer at the corner of the "wooded" patch .. needs to be weeded badly, but this plant looked interesting, and I've left it the last couple of years.  Flowers are similar to a snapdragon, but not quite the same ..   If you know what it is, I'd love to hear from you!
