T Stands for Accomplishment

 Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Today is the T Party over at 
Bleubeards and Elizabeth's Come join in or just visit the party goers. 
I am feeling pretty good about all the accomplishments going on in our garden. With horrible weather the last 2 months it has finally given in to 4 days of sunshine. Amazing what a little sunshine will do for plants even if it's not hot. I was able to get more planted and tables set up to hold everything. Hey, I use what I have on hand. Mr. M. got the PVC pipe up around the big garden, and I actually picked my first radish of the year. I ate it in the garden. It was so sweet and good. Anther week and I will have my first harvest of them. The lettuce has started to come up too. Finally! Everything is growing slow this year due to the cold and rain. But take a look for yourself. 
Of course click on the photos to see them better.

 Mr. M. finishing the garden.

 I love the big garden and Mr. M. for building it.

 Herbs doing well

 More herb and in the back chamomile is coming up.

 The onions are doing really well as are the peas.

 We will have lots of beans this year.

 Here are more herbs, flowers, baby carrots and radish.

 The potatoes are amazing.

 Eggplant and beats out in the sunshine.

 The deck looks good and gets lots of sun when it's out. LOL


 More lettuce.

Grey Squash


 Peas are finally growing.

 Bush squash.


 Different type of beans

Now to get into the party I have to show a drink. I like my drinks ice cold and most of the time put them in the freezer for a bit.
The light part of the beer is frozen. LOL
Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Love to see all the planting (tried my luck, too yesterday) and yips, drinks go to the freezer here first, also.
    Have a happy T-Day :-)

  2. Much healthy food is growing in your great garden πŸ’šπŸŒΏ
    I'm wishing you a happy day πŸŒΌπŸ€

  3. Your garden looks fantastic. So many different crops. You'll be eating really well. We have very little sunshine on a small lot, so we only grow herbs. Shade is good for sitting and enjoying the view, and good for keeping the A/C cost low, but it's hard to find flowers that will keep blooming -- let alone something like a carrot!

    best... mae at

  4. Your garden looks fabulous, good to see so many things sprouting and doing well, I'm sure it's a lot of hard work! Enjoy your beer, Valerie

  5. Nicole, your garden looks fantastic! Well done. Your drink looks pretty good too. :)

  6. wow - what a great looking garden, Nicole! I put my beers in the freezer a bit as well (especially with the hot weather). Happy T-day! Hugz

  7. Everything is looking great and to eat the first radish right in the garden is the best of all. That's satisfaction!

  8. ...the garden looks to be coming along nicely.

  9. Wow Nicole, your garden is looking great! Isn't it amazing what a day or 2 of sunshine can do? I'm ready to go but need to turn over my soil still. I thought today but then last night my husband finished the floorboards in the art space/bedroom project. My daughter is coming on Sunday so I really need to clear all my stuff out of her room. Anyhow, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed you get only a little wind and a lot of sunshine. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  10. Good morning Nicole, Your garden is looking awesome! same here this week very cold and still raining here-getting a bit depressed with all this rain, we even had to turn the heat back on since the house got down to the low 60's a bit cold for us especially my husband.
    Happy Gardening and Happy T hugs

  11. Your garden looks fantastic. I would love to be growing at least some squash and some of those herbs.

  12. oh dear Nichole you have SUCH A BREATHTAKING GARDEN ! it is hard to remove eyes from your lush gorgeous plants ,may they keep growing so well and may all the harvest be sweet as the radish last year:)

    you have a big house with huge yard i can see ,seems to me a dream house as being from village closed city houses are not my thing at all
    hugs and blessings

  13. Oh wow, That's a great look at your garden, it all looks so productive. We have had a lot of rain too, and it has definitely made things grow (good and bad - veggies good, grass not so good lol) Unlike you, I don't like my drinks really cold. Happy T Day Elle/EOTC xx

  14. You deserve a nice cold beer after all that gardening!

  15. What an absolutely amazing garden you and Mr. M have set up. I am impressed and loving the various herbs and veggies you are growing. They are all doing well despite the fact you have had no sun.

    I am not a beer drinker unless it's stout, but I can see how much a partially frozen beer would be good on a hot day. Thanks for sharing your garden and your beer with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.

  16. I bought some herbs for my balcony but need to get a few more.

  17. that is such a great looking garden- you really know how to tend all the plants and keep them going strong! My hubby likes a beer that is partially frozen on a very hot day too:) Happy T day!

  18. Your raised bed looks fabulous! What an amazing amount of produce you will have this season. Can't wait to hear all about the progress.
    Happy Tea Day,

  19. Wow! Your garden looks fantastic. I hope cold and rain gives way to warm and sun so your green things keep growing. Happy T Day

  20. Wow! You're growing so _much_! I'm impressed! It's beautifully arranged, too.

    Happy T Tuesday
