When it comes to vegetable gardens I absolutely love to see what other people are growing — and how.
I thought it would be fun to show you some of the great vegetable gardens my readers have been sharing. A little inspiration for you!
Real deal vegetable gardens from across the nation (plus one from Spain!)
From Patricia ^^
Front to back: Yellow and zucchini squash, cabbage ready to harvest, and snow peas & cukes climbing up the support in the back. The snow peas are just about done…the cucumbers have a long way to go.

I am harvesting zucchini by the boatload, lots of cucumbers, okra, rainbow chard, carrots and beets. Chervena peppers are beginning to turn from green to red. I have 3 soft ball sized watermelons so far.
From Jon ^^
Our summer garden in Northeast Florida. My daughter and i made some signs out of old fence slats and paint.
From Brandy ^^
Last night we had an unfortunate discovery in our nightly garden survey. Our tomato plants appear to have Septoria Leaf Spot with what also appears to be Blossom End Rot. Last year, although our tomato plants were packed tighter and it was wetter, they did not appear to have either of these problems and produced about 400 pounds of tomatoes.
Another from Brandy ^^
This is her main garden.
From Allison ^^
This is a few weeks ago. The tomatoes and corn and squash are HUGE now! Lots of blooms on the toms and buds all over the squash (sweet dumpling variety). Beans just flowered for the first time, too.
From Rhonna ^^
Rhonna uses intensive gardening, utilizing pollinator attractors, and companion planting. Artichokes utilize above ground area, onions utilize below ground, dill and pansies attract bees. Peas grow vertically on dog kennel, with below ground carrots.
From Barbara ^^
Barbara’s New Hampshire garden (look at the size of that squash!).
From Arianna ^^
Raised beds in northwest Pennsylvania.
Lynn says: “We’re building soil so I did a straw bale section in my garden this year. I’ll be turning the chickens loose on it (the goats already had a go) to help “till” it all in. SW Colorado w/irrigation water.”
From Charmaine ^^
Purple king pole beans and Peas… Part of the garden here in Litchfield Michigan
