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.

My squill is almost done. I love that stuff, even more than crocuses.

Asolutely gorgeous! What are the blue flowers? Are they blue bells? I love them and have them my garden.

The blue is Scilla Siberica or Siberian squill.

My camera is an SLR digital Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. I took these photos with my multipurpose zoom lens - an EF-S 17-85MM f4-5.6 IS USM lens.

I also have a nice macro lens - a Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro. It has a large aperture, which narrows depth of field and creates background blur, making the subject stand out.
