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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

marigold

My marigolds have started to bloom. This is Lemon Boy.

i used to think that they were smelly and kind of ugly.
Now, I love their cheery simplicity and I know that their smell keeps pests away from my garden. And, they are so easy carefree to grow.
Plus they have that inch worm song which I love.

Beautiful marigold!

I am waiting for mine to look like yours. Just sowed some seeds two weeks ago and I have seen several seedlings pushing through the ground. Can't wait to see them bloom!!!

I tried to have marigolds but my dogs ate them. If you would like to see what is left you can go to my blog and it is labeled RIP Marigolds. My dogs love the garden unfortunately they love to eat the garden too!
