Backyard at the end of May

Ok, left to right. Not all pretty but it's MINE all MINE !
Well except for hubbys favorite past time.

Hubbys half...
120 heirloom tomato plants and some other goodies.

Now mine...

This is not so pretty.
One of two work stations. Would make a nice patio...hmmm


  1. Your flower beds are looking so lush and beautiful. All those tomatoes.Nothing tastes any better than home grown tomatoes. Well maybe strawberries. LOL! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Your garden is beautiful. Workstations are are always functional.

    The beginning of a glorious summer in NJ. Sounds as if you'll be canning tomatoes. Yum.

    A patio, a toolshed -- gardens are so demanding.

    Looks like you will be having a lot of friends over for tomatoes. That is one big plot of them. Everything looks really nice at the end of May, you are ahead of us here. My four tomato plants are too small to show. Are you getting all the rain? My end of the month shows some pretty soggy weather.

  5. I have to say - your side is much prettier than your hubby's! :) Really, your garden is absolutely beautiful. And looks like your hubby's side is going to produce a lot. Oh, definitely do the patio!

  6. Oh, how i love finding new gardeners that share the passion of Gardening! I host a garden party on Thursday's called Cottage Flora Thursday's...would love to have you come by & peek around & would love it even better if you'd link a garden post sometime? oxox,tracie

  7. Lots of beautiful shots of your garden. And your hubby's tomato garden set up looks really efficient. How nice.

  8. Beautiful. Lots of things to make one pause and look. Love that huge hosta.

  9. 120 tomoatoes? Outdoors????
    What on earth do you do with that many tomatoes for starters?! I've given up trying to grow them outdoors here - the weather is just too unpredictable nowadys, but I thought I was going a bit over the top with the 20 plants in my greenhouse!

    I love your side of the garden - so restful :)

  10. Your garden looks beautiful, Patsi. I like the trellis with the honeysuckle growing up it. Lots of pretty flowers. I can't believe 120 tomato plants! Wow!

  11. Hi Patsi, So - your hubby had good luck with his tomatoes last year and he's doing it again this year? (Wasn't he the fellow that used the red plastic?)

    Love YOUR part of the garden!!!

  12. Hi Patsi,
    I enjoyed the tour of your back yard. I like all those tall stakes for the tomatoes. I planted mostly heirlooms this year. I have included a few the last couple of years, and found they don't get diseased any sooner or worse than the ones I have bought that were supposed to be disease resistant.

    I love your part of the yard! The planting area looks nice and functional. I need to figure out how to include bushes in my gardening. I have a few in the garden across the street, hoping to block the view of the other neighbors' yard. I didn't prune them when I was supposed to last year, so they are not shaped very nicely. If they bloom, I'll look up how to prune them.

    It's nice to be able to spend time in the garden, isn't it? We seem to have had a very short spring, though, as summer weather looks to be here for awhile. I saw a swallowtail caterpillar on the dill in the herb garden. I scolded it, because I have dill and parsley for the caterpillars in the garden across the street and in the veggie garden. Maybe there are some there, too; I haven't checked. I hope you find some soon.

    Your garden is sooooooo green, how lovely! Already here the countryside is tones of yellow and brown from the hot weather we've been experiencing. The space for the tomatoes looks very impressive! Christina

  14. Loved the garden views, Patsi :-)

    Your garden does look lush and your plants look relaxed. Ah... now yes... a very nice bright looking area for a patio. I agree :-)
