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.

pea flowers

I planted 4 varieties and the first to bloom is Cascadia. An enation-resistant Northwest bred snap pea variety. (What on earth is enation???)

It's a type of mosaic virus that aphids can spread to pea plants.

p.s. I stumbled across your blog a while back and have enjoyed reading it. I'm in Newton, not too far from you :)

Lovely!

I'm envious--I think I'm still weeks away from blooms.

My Cacadians are about 2 feet tall now. Maybe a bit less. They have little peas forming.
