Gardening 2015: Take 3

Here's the last two gardening posts of the year.
Gardening 2015: Take One
Take two.

Guess it's time for round 3. I'm hanging in there. Barely.  My body is sore and I've developed tendinitis. Not that you really need to know all that.  Point is, I've been working, working and working. And I feel like an old lady.

Good news? I ended up with oodles of seedlings. I wish I would have taken a pic right before they went in the ground. This one was nearly 3 weeks ago.

 This was last week. I tell you, enamel dippers, a bucket of water and oodles of plants? Kept them busy for a looong time.
I wish I took a pic before I planted, but here's the majority of them now:

 So far there's the following IN the garden. (More to come!)
Peas, parsnips, radishes, beans, red potatoes, white potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, 5 types of peppers, red onions, white onions, garlic, eggplant, 83 tomato plants, kale, collard greens.

 I have a bunch of seedlings started to go in still: zucchini, summer squash, cukes, acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, sugar pumpkins, basil, thyme, sunflowers, parsley. PLus some other random seed packets, glads, dahlias and pole beans to put in. Plus we are adding more blueberries and 2 plum trees too. 
Speaking of fruit, we have blossoms on the fruit trees we added 1-2 yrs ago.

 Clearly, it's a place for bugs to get busy....

  I wanted to make a more inviting porch, so I give it a little love and attention. (Those are $6/piece thrifted rod iron chairs, thrifted naturally.) 

All in all, home sweet home is looking more summer like.  It will be mighty special when all is boasting with color and produce, we're looking forward to those days! 
 Now tell me, how are your gardens shaping up?


  1. Your house is so appealing! Your garden is huge! I can hardly wait to see all of the goodies you gather!

  2. I seriously LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your home!
