Gardens: Let's see them!

I was inspired to make this thread when I saw gardening being mentioned in another thread. I like gardening, mostly through osmosis from my wife. She does all the planning, and buying, and buying, and buying, and seeding and planting, and buying some more. I provide the shoveling where she tells me to.

My backyard is doing well this year, everything has kind of settled from previous years. I'm not looking forward to my water bill this summer LOL

Peaches


Raspberries:



My Apple tree has 5 different apple types (multi-graft) on it:





Borage for the pollinators, and when they go to see the finches come and clean them up:


My Deck:


My Girl:


Wall of Tomatoes:


Next episode I'll get some pictures of my 25x100' city garden plot

Looks like you have some good outdoor living there

I was supposed to replace my deck last year and have a big 40th birthday bash in the backyard. Covid killed that so I told myself I’d rebuild it this year. Then lumber prices skyrocketed. My deck needs a lot of work

Thanks man. Yeah a couple years ago I sanded all 450 square feet of my deck on my hands and knees with a 3x21" Belt sander and 1/4 sheet finish sander. Took me 4 weekends. I'm not looking forward to doing it again.

You have a beautiful yard 68. I have a full rooftop on my village house, but if I ever tried to do something up there, it would get blown away by the first big typhoon. So it's just bare, used for tanning sometimes or hot pot in the winter

I saw someone mention that they had hydrangeas.. I'd love to see them post those here

We have one Hydrangea in the front yard. It was about three times the size last year, but in the early fall I re-coated my front steps and I used a surface etcher which I think got onto the plant and stunted its growth this year.
