Come Along on A Tour of My Beautiful Garden

Come Along on A Tour of My Beautiful Garden

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I’m so glad that you are here. One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk through the garden, but it’s aways so much more fun with a friend. So, let’s go on a tour of my garden together.

This is the entry to my garden. My garden is rather large, I have eight beds that are 40 feet long by 20 feet wide. It is divided by a walkway through the middle. I grow quite of bit of produce, herbs, berries and flowers.

This is an overview of the left side of my garden,
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things to grow. I grow loads of them in many different varieties. The French pumpkins are the best. I use the pumpkins to decorate the farm and the sell the rest at the vintage marketplace.
This gives you an idea of the layout of the garden.
I grow lots of blueberries. They were my kids favorite when they were growing up. I freeze all of the berries and use them for smoothies and blueberry pancakes.
This chess board is the centerpiece of the garden. When we have summer parties, our guests love playing chess here.
Oh how I love fresh artichokes out of the garden.
The blackberry patch. I also, grow loads of blackberries and freeze them. My specialty is blackberry cobbler. Yum!
Raspberries are my very favorite fruit. They never quite make it to a bucket or the freezer, they are eaten straight from the vine.
This is the view from my kitchen window. My garden is my happy place.
I grow loads of herbs. I use them to decorate charcuterie boards, tablescapes and serving platters. I also dry them and use them throughout the year. I’m planning on learning many ways to use lavendar this year. If you have ideas for me, I would love to hear all about them.

Sunflowers are my husbands favorite flower. Each each, I fill an entire bed with Mamoth Sunflowers. They grow to 12-14 feet tall. It’s a sunflower forest. My grandbabies love to run through the sunflower forest.

See more great posts here, here, here, here and here.

I hope that you enjoyed the tour of my garden. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I always enjoy our time together. Please follow me on, on Instagram @peacockridge, on PInterest and YouTube.

Hugs and blessings to you.

Until next time,

  1. What a beautiful garden, Renae. I love it! Do you have any deer that want to share in the produce? I love watching them on my lawn, but they love my hostas and flowers and have caused me to grow most of my herbs and produce on my deck away from their sight. My youngest grandson who is 6 has begun playing chess and would be in LOVE with that chess board. You have inspired me to think about adding one of those to my garden. Happy Memorial Day weekend, friend! May yours be full of lots of feet under your table!

    1. Luckily, no deer in the garde. I see them in the pastures, though. We struggle with rabbits. Rabbits are not very cute when they are eating everything that you have just plant. I quickly turn into Mr. McGregor.
      lessings to you.

  2. Your garden is absolutely magnificent, and I’m excited to see what you make with your Lavender and the rest of the herbs you grow! When I had my large herb garden, I used my Lavender in various ways, including bath products, potpourris, teas, vinegar, etc. You can put the flowers in pancakes, salads or sprinkle some on top of cupcakes and add some lemon or orange zest for color and a pop of flavor – they’re so versatile!

    You certainly are an experience gardener. I am new to your site and love to read your articles on your table setting tutorials and your garden. In regards to your garden, I am interested in what products and tips you use and would you be so kind in sharing? Perhaps a post with close-up pictures of your garden design and of your step by step garden procedures would be of help. I would like to learn from you. Thank you Linda Primeaux

  4. What a beautiful, functional garden. We are at the beginning of ours. We are fencing a 48 x 24 area with 8 beds.
    Love seeing your inspiration.

  5. Diane

    I just LOVE your place. So HAPPY that I got to see it in person.

    Your gardens are amazing! I added Raspberries to mine this year. I can’t wait to see how they do. I can’t wait to see what you do with your berries.

  7. Your garden is so huge! I love how it is fenced in and I bet that helps to keep critters out of the garden! We have attempted to grow blueberries without much luck. I think my spot is too shady. We also have thornless blackberries and they are sooooo good! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden! Blessings to you!

    Simply Breathtaking. I dream of a garden and landscape like that one day. You have done so much work to make it look so beautiful. Little by little I hope ours can look as beautiful like yours one day. As always, Thank you for sharing.

  9. This by far is one of the prettiest garden that I ever laid eyes on. It is stunning, Renae!

    1. Thank you so much, Tammy. It is a labor of love and my happy place. Bleassings to you.

    Your garden is magnificent! I have a tiny little garden. I can’t imagine one of that size. So cool!

  11. Renae, what a wonderful garden. How blessed you are to have such a large property to include a garden ~ and a lifesize chessboard! All the yummy fruits and vegetables at your fingertips!! Thank you for sharing at Tuesday Turn About. Pinned!

  12. That is quite a garden, it’s absolutely incredible I can’t get over how large and beautiful it is! I’m a white picket fence gal, and your fence style is my favorite! I have blackberries, but I’m with you, raspberries are my favorite too, and the chess game is awesome!

    1. Thank you so much, Dee. It is my happy place for sure, but it is constant work. Hugs to you.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
