This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

June 3, 2006




















These are beautiful Yellow Flag Iris (Iris pseudacorus) growing in a nearby wet-land. Unlike the Blue Flag Iris, which is native to the U.S. northeast, Iris pseudacorus is a non-native, invasive plant. It is fast-growing and fast-spreading and can outcompete other wetland plants, forming almost impenetrable thickets. http://aquat1.ifas.ufl.edu/seagrant/iripse2.html
