I Love My Garden

My garden is one of my favorite places. It has taken me a few years to adjust to living in the South and learn what plants work here. Finally, I am seeing success! Also, I branched out and have 3 tomato plants and 5 cucumber plants this year. I don't have a good space for a vegetable garden, so the veggies are hanging out in the flower garden. (ah, suburban living!)

I love being able to sit on my front porch in the early morning or after Ladybug (2 years old) goes to bed. The peace and quiet is amazingly refreshing!

I thought I would share my garden with you today!

Several of my day lilies - I just love the color variations
My cucumbers

My tomatoes are in topsy turvy growers (this was taken a few weeks ago, so they are much bigger now!)And we call this "Susie's Garden" in memory of our first daughter. Another reason to love hanging out in this space!

  1. I love it. :) Your little garden is growing beautifully. Have you ever used the Topsy Turvy before? I have a neighbor who swears by it, so we got a few this year. I'm a little skeptical, but we'll see!

  2. Tara, this is my first year using the topsy turvy grower too, but I've heard great things about this method of growing tomatoes. Can't wait to taste the results!

  7. It's beautiful! Please let us know how the topsy turvy grower works. I've considered but wondered how it would do.
