Veggie garden

So I am finally posting garden pictures. We have a veggie garden that is 20 feet x 20 feet, and a flower garden which is 50 feet long. Let's focus on the veggie garden for this post. Here it was when we first tilled and fenced it on May 1st:
Here it was when we first put the plants/seeds in. We planted the herbs, peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant from plants and all the rest was seeds. This was June 1st:

Here is the garden most recently:
carrots and marigolds
broccoli and cauliflower
onion and cucumber

more cucumber and chives
red, orange and green peppers
baby peppers growing
oregano, rosemary, and basil

cilantro and parsley
Zucchini and squash

more zucchini and squash
Eggplant and sunflowers

Whole garden
I am pretty proud of my garden since this is the first one we have done. I guess the flowers have to wait for another day!


  1. Wowzers! What an amazing garden!!! And I thought my little 8x8 plot was ambitious for a first-timer :) So jealous of all the room you've got. I'm already plotting having DH build me a second raised bed.... I'll blame it on you ;)

  2. Oh my word!!! This is so incredible!!! I'm so jealous!!! Beautiful, beautiful garden!!! Well chosen plants!!!

  3. i'm so jealous of your garden! i wish i had enough room for one. better yet, i wish i wasn't so good at killing plants! ;)

  4. Nice garden! I miss our house in the USA. Living in an apartment is no good when you want to garden. We are certainly not going to buy a house in Germany just so I can have a garden though. I will just have to wait until we move back home...

  5. oh WOW! I'm beyond impressed. I've always wanted to grow a vegetable garden, but never actually tackled it. You have so much variety, it really seems worth it! Can't wait to see the flowers..

  6. You have created a stunning garden. I could scroll through those pictures every day. Job well done!!
