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.

Another sign of spring - the racks of $1.99 primroses are out at Home Depot! Love their happy faces.

Note to self: stop at Home Depot on the way home tomorrow. Not usually my favorite store, but $2 primroses? Can't beat that!

hehe lovely colours. We have $2 potted colour here for autumn too, though with the poor quality of the Australian dollar you can probably get double your money's worth!

The very center of the bloom is my favorite part. The tiny yellow flower within a flower.

Somehow I think the resolution of this photo ended better than the real plant. Its like a mini felt flower pasted in the center. I love to see all the details....

great photo. as for your recent confession on what you don't like to eat... I am planning to grow brussel sprouts for the first time this year. the plants will make for a great photo and I want to eat a fresh one from my garden before I give them their final judgment
