Post here about your current garden. What do you have planted? What do you plan to plant? Any pictures you're willing to share?

My garden is really messy, so it's hard to make out the plants from the weeds in the pics:

here are my zucchini plants, but they've grown since the pic was taken:


here are my main beds, full of 20 tomato plants (you may have to squint )


much easier to see what this is:

We have strawberries in our garden, they are much nicer grown by you than buying from shops

we have a greenhouse and garden area outside. the outside plants are not doing as good as the ones in the greenhouse. we had a really wet and cool june and it did not work in our favor, so things ourside are really slow going.

outside we have

grapes
raspberries
strawberries
apples
apricots
plums
cherries
about 10 different kinds of melon and squash
corn
onions
garlic
potatoes

greenhouse

Zucchini
Acorn Squash
and an unknown squash
42 tomato plants!
peppers
broccoli
lettuce
spinach
parsley
basil
chives
thyme
eggplant
cabbage
peas
green beans
corn
radishes are done and out


so as soon as august/september comes, i'll be having veggies coming out my ears!

inside the greenhouse



corn!


peppers! that tall one is up to my belly button! huge


broccoli-finally a little floret...soon to be a head.


lettuce and herbs...those types of plants


a pea blossom...so pretty


my zucchini plant is ginormous....here's a leaf with my hand


and a full pic..of course pics don't do it justice...it's almost 3 1/2 feet tall and 5 feet wide


my twin pumpkins...i've never seen them grow together like that


and last...my little frog in my greenhouse...he's supposed to help with bugs.


sorry so many pics! but i love my garden. i spend at least 2 hrs in it everyday.

Those are awesome pics. They make me hungry. hehe

I have hostas, heucheras, coneflowers, saliva (both annual and perennial), impatiens, dahlias, creeping jenny, ice plant, sedums, rudbeckia, hydrangeas (including the new Incrediball which I love), Variegated Liriope, Double Knock Out Rose Bushes, Gardenia Shrubs, Shasta Daisy, Catmint, Butterfly Bushes, Blue Fortune Anise Hyssop, Russian Sage, Chocolate Chip Ajuga, Hellebores, Ferns, Peonies, Asiatic Lily, Yarrow, Thyme, Weigela Shrubs, Lamb's Ear, some other evergreens shrubs, and Rosemary.

I love them all and it's been so exciting to see them grow more and more every growing season. I'd love to have a veggie garden one day. We're planning on ctting a few trees down to provide better sunlight in parts of the yard and then I'll attempt veggie gardening.

I'll post pics as soon as I can.
