What Did I Get Myself Into?

Ever since I've lived in our house, I have had a garden. 
Each year I have let it get a little bigger.  
Year one: maybe 3 ft x 4 ft. (Just stakes and netting as a border)
Year two: 6 ft x 4 ft. ( Cute white Pickett fence)
Year three: 10 ft x 12 ft. (Some more cute fence)
Year four: 10 ft x 12 ft. ( Small wire fencing to mark off some flower beds out side of the veggies)

And this year, I had it in my head to stay small,
 we have a lot lined up for the end of summer .
Just tomatoes, cucumbers, some green beans.
Nothing extravagant.
Well. Then I went shopping.

Now my garden consists of:
