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.

day lilies

The perfect midsummer flower! These are growing in a nearby plot at the community garden. Others are 'weeds' in the paths and in my plot.

Beautiful garden! I'm learning so much from you. I've had my first veggie garden this year and have done really well...except vine borers killed all the squash. Anyway, where did you get the day lily's from? They are gorgeous!

Vine borers are a very tough problem. I have yet to find a solution for this. I expect they will find my squash soon.

The day lilies photographed here are in Bruce's garden at the Belmont Community Garden. He has over 50 varieties in his plot. I don't know where he got them from, but a great day lily source is R. Seawright Gardens in Carlisle MA. I just love to walk through their fields in mid summer when all the lilies are in bloom!
