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.

rain on dill

rain on dill
We've had 2.7 inches of rain in the past week. Pretty wet. The gardens are soggy and muddy. But I think most of the vegetables have been enjoying it (with the exception of the basil). This photo is some dill, which looks really happy to me.

This is a really stunning photo -- saw it on Garden Voices and had to stop by to say hello. I love raindrop-on-plant photos, and this one is gorgeous.

Very very pretty photo! I agree, a rainy day is wonderful for snapping photos in the garden.

Could you please send some of the rain our way? It's so dry here!

Dill is one of my favorite plants this year. It is sooo nice in a salad! I just love the flavor and scent. Also nice that it comes up year after year as a volunteer all over the garden.
