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.

flowers in my October garden

October hyssop flowers 2

Most summer flowers are gone. A few remain. I was pleased to see honeybees still foraging. I photographed these flowers on Thursday, then pulled the nasturtiums on Saturday and after they were damaged by frost between these dates. Hyssop, borage and dill still look happy.

Lovely last minute splashes of colour. A heavy frost last Wednesday/Thursday finished off the Dahlias, Calendulas etc. Such an early frost!! Maybe its age, but I don't remember feeling the cold so early in the Autumn??
