My garden is all planted and now it’s time to wait for the fruits and vegetables of my labor. I live in the suburbs and have a limited amount of sunny spots in my yard to grow vegetables. I have learned to make do. I plant a fairly large garden 15 x 20. I have tomato plants, a total of 24. I also have peppers and beans. The large plant on the left is a pumpkin plant. I am going to let it grow wild and see what happens. 🙂

I also have a small herb garden closer to my side door. It makes it easy to grab a few herbs when I’m cooking. I have cilantro,dill, oregano, purple basil, thyme and rosemary. In the pots I have sage and basil babies ready to be replanted. I am not a fancy gardener. It may not always look pretty and perfect but it grows and it’s delicious! If you have a pot with some good soil and sun you can grow a few things in the summer, anyone can.

This big guy is a rhubarb plant. I think it’s pretty neat to look at. It’s an easy plant to have in the garden. Rhubarb is a perennial. This is the first year I have actually cooked with rhubarb. So stay tuned for my delicious creations which I will be posting soon.

That’s it for today. I will keep you posted on my progress in the garden. There is still plenty of time to get planting. Go out and grab a pot, some nice soil and some seeds. Find a nice sunny spot on your property and get growing. You’ll be amazed at how well you will do.

Happy Backyard Gardening!!!

    I don’t dare try anything as big as a pumpkin. Last year my cucumber plant was huge! I need to figure out how to thin out what has started growing; I hate that part – deciding which plants live or die.

    Hi Diane,
    I just love your garden, it is looking good. We had fresh sliced tomatoes from our garden for lunch today, they were so good. Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!

    It seems like it will be a short season this year. I have two potted tomato but they are not really doing a lot.. There are no new blooms. The tomatos that are on there now may be the only ones I get. Not enough sun. I had wanted to get some squash and pot those but it hardly seems worth it. You have a big garden I hope it does well.
