The Beginning of my Deck Garden

Good afternoon everyone! It has been a while since I posted anything, I have been doing some sewing and just trying to adjust to losing my Dad.                We finally got out deck garden started a few weeks ago and I wanted to share some photos of it.  I will post more as it grows.
 Here are my tomatoes some flowers and my spearmint.
 More of my tomatoes and flowers. The blue and white buckets are multi-color bell peppers.
 Blossoms on my tomato plants!
 The two big pots are rhubarb. I have three containers of romaine lettuce.

This is my cucumber plants, they really shot up in the past few days. We always have lots of cucumbers! 
 Isn't the romaine lettuce pretty!
The big pot on the left are my strawberry plants, I have netting over them and fastened with clothespins. I also have dill, rosemary, chives, sweet basil, thyme, oregano. My beautiful fuchsia plant is from Lowe's markdown plants and was 1.00!!!
 I love having fresh herbs!
 This is my prize Babycakes Blackberry plant all enclosed in bird netting. The birds and squirrels aren't going to get my berries!!!
 I just love my blackberry plant!
 See, I have berries!
 More blossoms and berries!

 I just love these colors and at the top of the photo is my spearmint.
 Look how pretty! Oh there is a little visitor, actually my granddaughter Alexis gave him to me a few years ago.
 Another one of my bargain plants from Lowe's. Isn't it beautiful!!! Actually I purchased all of my flowers in the bargain section at Lowe's. From 1.00 to .50, .25 and .01 for my pentas (once the start blooming I will take photos of them Wow one penny for pentas)!
 I love how the co-ordinate.
 Aren't these beautiful, they look fluffy and .50!
 They all look so pretty!
 Don't you just love the color! My cucumbers in the background.
 My 1.00 fuchsia, I just love it! It was pretty wilted when I purchased it.
 Just look at those blossoms!!!

 I love petunias and the verbena too!
 My gorgeous geranium! I have another that hasn't bloomed yet but will soon, it is a bright pink.
My beautiful little fluffy blossoms!   I hope you enjoyed seeing the beginning of my garden! Oh yes, I have cantaloupe plants growing below the deck in a kiddy pool all chicken wired up, those little critters aren't getting my cantaloupe!          Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
Hugs Pam


  1. Wow, Pam, your deck garden looks so amazing!! I garden on my deck, too, but I don't put anything out until after Mother's Day (afraid of frost). I'm jealous of how amazing all of your flowers and plants look!! I take all of my houseplants outside and they thrive in the summer. I have a hibiscus that's about 10 years old. I grow tomatoes, green and red peppers, squash and zucchini in pots, too. Dragon wing begonias are one of my favorite flowers to plant...they grow so big and beautiful. And fuchsia - yours is amazing!! Thanks for sharing, my friend!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  2. Pam, what gorgeous flowers. Your yard must look spectacular with all that color! We just bought and planted our plants today. We are about a week early from what's usually recommended for our area but with the wedding approaching fast we needed to get it done. I planted the tomatoes and peppers tonight. I still need to plant the cucumbers and zucchini. I also planted 4 pots of marigolds that I'll be giving to the twins' teachers this week for teacher appreciation. We have to fence everything in so the deer can't eat them. I planted and Tom fenced it in. Really enjoyed seeing your pictures. Your garden is so much farther than mine is. I do have basil too on my porch but I had to put it up because Valerie tried to pull it out of the pot yesterday. LOL! Have a wonderful week!

  3. WOW! What a lovely garden you have on this gorgeous red deck! The flowers are wonderful, and good for you at snagging those bargain plants. If you have a green thumb, TLC and water brings 'em back. Love that you have all the veggies growing there too (and how cute to tuck the bunny in the flower arrangement. Never thought of that!) Your bright red color on the deck is fabulous. You have your work cut out for you watering in the heat, and also smart to grow your own romaine and know it is safe to eat! I never dreamed that so many things would grow in pots like this. We've tried the whiskey drum pots out off the deck before, but the birds got more of the crop than we did. I thought about trying 2 containers of tomatoes inside the screen porch so the birds can't destroy them. We tried covering with screening one year, but that would blow off the way we had it anchored, if we got winds during a storm. We have to watch & get in the mealy worm trays for the bluebirds. They are the clear plexi-glass things with a bell dome to help keep the food dry, and if it gets windy, they blow off the hooks. One got bent and it was $45 at a nursery. Now we take them in if we are expecting winds! TFS & Hugs. Really enjoyed your garden and lovely to see you posting again.

  4. WOW Pam not only is your garden amazing but oooh your photography is fabulous too. I was missing you my friend and just dropped in to check on you. Hope you are feeling better
