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.

sunflower autumn gold

This sunflower is growing in a pot on my patio. Its 6 or 7 feet tall. I had to get a ladder out to get this photo. I have several different varieties of sunflowers planted around my yard this year. This is the first to bloom. I wonder who will find it first - the squirrels or birds?

The first photo is a cropped and enlarged section of the lower photo. My camera has nice resolution, especially in full sunlight, even without a macro lens. (A macro lens is on my wish list - maybe some day...)

This sunflower is not very big - probably 6-8 inches diameter, but sure is tall.
