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.

marigolds Fireball

This has been a fantastic marigold in my garden this year. I don't know the name, but I think I bought plants at Bonny's Garden center. I was thinking of collecting seeds, but these may be hybrids, so I won't bother.

Stunning! I think I can smell them all the way over here ;)

Those look like the ones I have. They self-seeded in my garden and grew just fine. So I'm saving seeds for next year.

Oh good! Then I'll save the seeds. Thanks.
