Hey ya'll! I know I've been bad and I have not shared any pictures of my flower garden this year. I have just been so busy renovating a large flower garden, and creating a vegetable garden (with the help of my husband who does all the construction and back breaking labour) that I haven't had time to take flower pictures. I still do not have flower pictures to share, but I do have a couple of videos of our new vegetable garden. It's still not done (and at the rate we're going it won't be finished until fall), but I wanted to give you a little preview of our progress so far. The top picture is what the garden looks like now, then I have "in progress" pictures below the videos.
Even though we started working on our garden as soon as the weather was warm enough, because so much construction was involved to build the beds and pathways, the plants were a little late getting into the ground. So if it looks like my plants should be bigger by now, or producing more veggies by now, that is the reason why. We also had a woodchuck get into our garden before it was completely fenced in and he ate most of my salad greens and broccoli.
Anyway here are a couple of videos. The first one is ten minutes and gives a complete garden tour where I share all the veggies I planted. The second video is a short three minute video of our cat Jackson venturing outside for the first time in four years. When we designed the vegetable garden, we wanted it to also be a little safe, enclosed, outside playground for our kitty. We have lots of feral cats, coyotes, fox, and predatory birds in our backyard, so we do not let our sweet, beloved kitty outside. With the new garden, now he can enjoy being outdoors and stay safe at the same time.
Finally, here are a few pictures I took of the vegetable garden in progress. The picture below was taken from inside the house looking out. This was before the fence went up. You can see the vegetable garden through the sunroom windows. I wasn't sure how I would like that, but now that's it done I love it. It's as if the vegetable garden is part of the sunroom now.

This picture gives a view of the outside of the sunroom.
And here is a view of the garden extending from the south porch if I were looking west standing in front of the garden off of the sunroom.
Here I am standing in the far west side looking east. This is the garden off the porch, in the distance is the garden off the sunroom. The gravel path separating the two garden still have to to be paved to prevent weeds.
These two pictures face south and shows my garden shed in the lower garden along with my perennial flower gardens.
I hope you enjoyed my videos. I'll be back with another one when it's completely finished and hopefully some flower pictures too!
Have A Great Day! Amy
