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.

How pretty! I'm growing borage for the first time this year...it's still tiny as it got a late start. I've heard the leaves taste like cucumber...do you use them in salads?

Borage has very beautiful flowers. I always thought I should plant them for the blooms alone. I'll have to add it to my list next year. Great photos.

I do plant them for the flowers alone, though I have been meaning to try the leaves in salad.

As my sister reminds me, once you plant it, it'll come up all over the garden in future years. I always enjoy my dill plants volunteering among the carrot and beans. Hopefully I can recognize borage seedlings and have scattered borage too.
