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.

Beautiful! What is the 10th flower down…the one that has little spikes coming off the fruit?…cucumber? It looks a lot like my Parisian pickling ones.

Is the last photo borage? It's such a striking flower. Mine are still seedlings, and I can't wait to see them in bloom.

Yes, #10 is a cuke. No borage in bloom yet in my garden. Last one is a potato flower. Potatoes are in full bloom now. I am looking forward to borage blooms too. My borage reseed and are 1 foot tall plants now. I don't think there are buds yet though.
