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 garden

fall flowers 108
fall flowers 122 fall flowers 116
blueberry leaves fall flowers 136
johnny jump up

These are the last flowers of the year. In the corners and at the edges of my gardens. OK, one is actually blueberry leaves that look bright as flowers. I think they will all be covered with snow soon.

Is that a little violet or a Johnnie-jumpup? So cute! We are still getting tomatoes off the vines here in way South SoCal, but the last rose was two weeks ago.

Thanks for blogging about your garden; it'd grand watching things pop out of the ground there. Happy Thanksgiving.

Its a johnny jump up. I have scattered volunteers every year that show up in different places in my garden.

That's a lovely sweet pea. Do you know the name of it? Thanks.

Its a bronze snapdragon. I think from a distance it has a bronze look. But its really a mix of yellow and pink. Maybe Bronze Rocket? But I don't remember what the tag said - I bought seedlings at Nunan's in Boxford MA.

BYW, its still in bloom. My longest lasting flower this year.

I've never grown snapdragons. There sure are some pretty ones out there. Definitely on my list for next season, thanks.

Very new to gardening. I built 3 garden beds (well actually my boys built them for me). It's December 22nd,I'm dying to start gardening, but not sure when I should begin or what. I also run a preschool and would love to incorporate a children's vegetable garden.
Thanks so much for any input.

Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah, Patty
