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.

Yes, it worth it just for the flowers! And I don't photograph red/pink very well so they're even prettier than this.

Just ate our first picking last night (6/7). It is amazing how quickly they go from flower to edible. Baby favas have quickly become as eagerly awaited as asparagus for me.
