Welcome to the Jungle, Part 1

I know this is just the beginning, and it's pretty funny to me, but my kitchen counter is full of plants!
I was seriously thinking about transplanting some of the seedlings today, but after checking the temperature/planting guide online, I think I'll wait another week or two. We will be having some days in the 40's in the next couple of weeks, and I don't want to ruin all my hard work.

See other garden pics online, I know it's going to get even crazier! Some of these plants will be 5' tall - pretty close to my size!

In sectioning my garden for planting, I've learned that it probably won't be all planted in neat little rows. Some plants need mounds like squash. As the plants grow, I'll need stakes and wires for beans and tomato plants. Considering what I've been through to get the soil ready, this sounds like a piece of cake - I can't wait to see these plants in the middle of summer!
