Any Gardeners Here? (Photo intense)

Gardening is such great therapy for me. I love when my yard becomes awash with scent and colour. These are some pictures I've taken in my garden over the past week. Does anyone else have any pictures to share?






























Of course, I can't forget my two lawn ornaments!

Absolutely GORGEOUS!

Oh, I wish I had the time and effort to grow such beautiful things! I will live vicariously through you--thank you so much for the stunning pictures! And of Kai and Samm--our sweetie is at the trainer, and we are missing him.

This is the gardening I have done this year (and I am very proud of myself, since I have never had my own garden before!):

I have also had about ten thousand of the little tomatoes seen in the last picture (they are actually pinky-red, not blood red like they look in the picture) since I took the above pictures, but somehow didn't get any pictures of them uploaded. The color of the one little one in the first pickings picture is about right. We are now awaiting the ripening of all of the Brussels sprouts, and hope they do well in our hot climate. Each picture is of stuff I picked on different days, and I finally gave up taking pictures due to the produce overload! It's amazing what you get out of two 4' x 10' garden patches!

And here's the planter we made in front of the house in about 45 minutes. It sure helps to have the materials (railroad ties, last year's manure) and tools (backhoe, etc.) to do the job right on hand!

Oh, and they are gorgeous!

Susan, that looks amazing! I've only grown tomatoes, beans, corn and herbs. I'd like to build some raised beds like yours and give it a try.

I'm the vegetable gardener and my wife is the flower garden professional. I do it for the best eating tomatoes, broccoli, canteloupe, cucumbers, corn and straight-neck squash that beats the grocery store any day of the week. My wife has all kinds of flowers but her gardens as well as mine have taken a hit this summer due to drought conditions. I have an irrigation system but the heat has just burned up vegetables on the vine. Even the deer have come out of the woods to drink out of our bird baths and the garden pond. Oh well, maybe better luck next year.

Great pictures by the way. I can't wait to show them to my wife. I'm a lab lover also. Great dogs.

Cameron, the raised beds were SUPER easy to build and work in. I figured 4' width so I could reach from either side easily. The brick foundation made a great walkway between the two beds until the dang tomatoes took over! We just used regular 2x10 10' and 4' boards, screwed them together, and reinforced the edges with bent metal straps. Don't use treated wood unless you isolate it from the garden dirt with a liner or something, due to the chemicals in the wood.

Craig, I am so sorry about your plants! It's been awful here in Arkansas too, but the plants are hanging on. Hoepfully next year will be better for you.

Susan

Thanks very much for the instructions. This sounds very similar to what my brother and his wife built.

Thanks Susan,
I tilled up much of the garden today and will be transplanting small broccoli plants within the next few weeks. I hope they make it because my wife loves broccoli. I still have one row of bell pepper plants which have produced only a few peppers this year. The blooms keep falling off. It was 101 degrees one day last week followed by a 102 degree day. This weekend was in the mid 90's so there was some relief.

Great photos Cameron! Purple coneflowers are so showy--doncha love them??
Wow Susan nice gardens great looking produce there...we like raised beds too, we have to put a small hotwire fence around the base of our beds though to keep the deer and the other animals out or we wouldn't have anything at harvest time.
