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.

Cambridge community gardens

I went by this community garden yesterday and couldn't resist stopping for a few pictures. Someone has an impressive crop of lettuce and peppers. Some nice sunflowers. Red bee balm. Squash vines are popular on the fence and have grown well out of the official garden area. (I should have checked for female squash flowers!) Something about community gardens is very pretty. And interesting. Different styles all together. Some plots weedy, some tended. Some in rows, others scattered. A patchwork.
