I thought I'd post this update on my gardening. I have tomato plants in both a raised bed "patch" and also in big pots. I'm also growing green beans. And I have a bunch of flowers on the deck and along our front porch---with petunias, marigolds, coleus, zinnias, and gladiolas. Yesterday I triumphantly picked my first ripe regular tomato (pictured next to the red gladiola). All but one of my tomato plants are the regular kind, but I do have one cherry tomato plant from which I got a few ripe ones already. But most of the regular tomatoes are still green. I'm freezing the green beans as I pick them. I intend for this Thanksgiving's green bean casserole to be made out of my green beans! I'm doing everything organically---no pesticides. Those plants are as tall or taller than I am (5'1") and they're still growing!!! There must be something in our yard that they like because they always do that. We're on a slight incline so perhaps it's the good soil drainage. The Japanese beetles and budworms attacked the petunias recently, costing me a lot of blooms---it was terrible. But after using Neem Oil and Bt (which are organic), they have rallied and re-flowered, per that picture at the top. But I have to pay attention, that's for sure. It's a lot of work, that's for sure.
wow stunning,love the colours

That is quite a beautiful and healthy garden and worth every bit of work you put into it. Great rewards in both beauty and taste.
Your garden looks great! I hope you enjoy a bountiful harvest.
Beautiful! We didn't do one this year, it feels very weird & looks very empty. Thank you for sharing the gorgeous pictures!
Beautiful flowers. Wish all mine looked like that.
Your tomatoes look fantastic. I have mine in larger pots and they don't look that good.
So hot here I don't want to go outside.
You have done a great job. Enjoy.
