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. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

I love the flowers on vegetables! I have seen some wonderful blogs, yours is brilliant. My Buddy sends his love to your Skippy! Have a look at my blog 'Buddy and the Beans' Best wishes from London, England.

My eyesight's getting bad. I thought your title read Blooming Elephants and wondered why you would entitle pictures of eggplants, elephants. I need my caffeine. The color does sort of resemble elephant hide though. I love the little aphid on the close up.

Its getting bad when you can't tell and elephant from an eggplant. It is an odd color, isn't it. The variety is called "Dusky".
