Round Robin Photo Challenge --- Growing

Growing is the theme for this weeks Round Robin Photo Challenge. I did not have to go any farther then my own yard to find plants in bloom. But, I would rather share with you my sister and brother-in-law's vegetable garden. They plant a garden that is larger then our whole yard. Anything in excess of what is needed for their own use is distributed to many lucky friends, family and needy in the area.

These shots were taken two weeks apart with the first taken two weeks ago and the others yesterday. Everything is definitely growing in this garden.

You can check out the photo's posted by the other Robin's or join the fun by visiting


  1. Good morning Rita! What a wonderful garden your sister and BIL have planted. How great to be a recipient of their fresh produce!

  2. What a huge garden...what all are they planting?

  3. I've been holding back from planting my tomatoes ... it's been too chilly :(

    I played too ... with a non-growing pic :)

  4. Hi Rita, very healthy looking garden, you have there! Wondering who started the "Round Robin" meme? Looks like a bit I could do. Happy week-end to you and belated welcome back :)

  5. Hi!
    Wonderful Garden! It looks so healthy with all that black dirt or black gold as some gardener's call it. Your photos are great! Mine is posted at my place, Sherrie's Stuff. Have a great day!!


  6. Hi Rita :)

    Oh yum... and huge garden filled with lots of delicious fresh veggies. Yes, that is summer's gift isn't it? YUMMY. Wonderful photos.


  7. Thank you all for the lovely comments.

    As to my BIL's garden they grow a bit of everything. If there is a seed or plant available they give it a try. They also have a fruit orchard. Strawberries, rhubarb, blueberries and every vegetable possible.

    It is hard work but their annual grocery bill is extremely small and they eat healthy. They host the members of our family for meals often so we do get to reap the results of their hard work.

    So do many other members of the community with the donations they make of the excess. In these troubled times, I do wish that a lot more folks with fallow ground and/or knowledge would volunteer to help their neighbors by planting community gardens.

  8. mmmmm....rhubarb! I do miss the gardening. Next flat I find will have to have a spot of land for one. I can take the time to tend it...

  9. That is a gorgeous garden! It reminds me of the kind my father-in-law used to plant. It was full of wonderful things and we were lucky enough to get many of the veggies and fruits he produced.

  10. Looks like some promising growth there. I haven't planted any tomatoes yet as we haven't had the weather until this past few days.

  11. amazing the progress over that short period of time! how neat to be able to grow to share with family and friends :)

    have a great Sunday


  12. Great growing entry, what a beautiful vegetable garden..weed free too! Reminds me of the huge gardens we had years ago..but should plant again! :)

  13. Hi Rita, what nice garden shots. Soon they will be gathering their bounty.

  14. Definitely see growth! It's amazing, isn't it? Fabulous entry!


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
