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.

rose 6 rose 7
rose 1 rose 2
rose 3 rose bush

I suppose I should spray this rose a bit with something to help it out. Its putting so much energy into such a beautiful show and the bugs are taking advantage of it.

mystery garden rose: Falstaff maybe?

What a beautiful rose! It looks like my Sarah Bernhardt peony that's just opening up its blooms!
