The first four pictures are of my garden.

As you may or may not know, I live across the road from an organic farm……

They grow tons of different kinds of vegetables and plant all summer long. 

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of their garden…..

I am loving my raised beds. I have had to pick maybe 3-5 weeds total each week.

Next year Hubby will be building me more !

A great outdoor post for today. I loved seeing your yard as well as the fields near you. Nice job of combining them into a great feature.

Your garden looks great! It is getting hard to keep anything alive here. 113 today.... we're melting! :)

That organic farm must provide lots of inspiration!Sure is pretty!

Wildflowers always make me slam on the brakes of my SUV, stand at the side of a busy road and pretend I am a famous photographer. LOL..

Your garden looks so healthy! You must not have 5 hundred GazLiOn grasshoppers over there! They are a plague out here. I'm only exaggerating a little bit. ;O

I always enjoy visiting and hope you will keep us posted on how things are going in your corner of Colorado! Sarah and I took a road trip and went down south. One of these days, though, I am heading your way! ♥♫

The fields of wildflowers is one of the things I loved when I lived in TX. They grew wild in fields and all along the roadsides. Your garden looks great. I am hoping to have raised beds next year. They seem to be so much easier to maintain.

Your weed free garden looks great, Kammy! There is nothing tastier than fresh picked vegetables.

Love your garden! Your squash (pumpkins??) plants are putting mine to shame. I think I started them too late. Have a good rest of the week :)

Hi! I'm stopping by from Outdoor Wednesday! I love your garden beds. My husband built me two this year, but alas, I didn't put anything in them this summer. Maybe a fall garden will do...Thanks for sharing.

Kammy - ummmmm . . . will you please adopt me so I can come live at your house? That view is one I could never, ever tire of. And the rain sweeping in . . . perfect for the fields.
I must admit - this is now one of my all time favorite posts. It is so ME!
Thank you for sharing.
My raised beds SANK! Terribly! Some little critters enjoyed the soil too! Needless to say - they are gone. It made me sad - but . . . it was ridiculously expensive refilling them twice a year. UGH!
Have a wonderful weekend! We are outta here!
Hugs! Karen

Hi Kammy! Thanks for stopping by! I just can't believe it! I have just recently been thinking of finding out how to make a raised bed for a vegetable garden. Then you left a post on my blog, I came back to visit with you and I find your post about one! You have a new follower!! You made it look so easy! Hugs!

The field of wildflowers is amazing.

Your raised beds are awesome!

Garden looks good, KM! Mine looks sad, the deer loved it though! Good thing we still have farms nearby!

Jane @ The Borrowed Abode said...

Oh, your gardens and your area's mountainous backdrop are both so dreamy!
My raised bed gardens were doing well, until the bugs took over. (At least it was organic before that!)

Kind of tired of looking at that cute Otis all summer!
