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.

just another pretty weed

fleabane in my garden daisy fleabane

A little daisy fleabane (Erigeron annuus) has volunteered in my garden between the broccolis and kale. Its a pretty wildflower that's native to our area.

It's always nice to have a few 'flowers' mixed in with the vegetables. The fleabane is a nice one to have, if you are going to have a volunteer.

This fleabane plant is getting enormous. I'm glad it volunteered as its one of my favorites. And there aren't many wildflowers left at this time of year.
