This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

pear blossoms

pear blossoms 060 pear blossoms 109 pear blossoms 065 The two espaliered pears in my community plot are full of blossoms! Finally.

For two years they haven't bloomed at all. Last summer I found a book on pruning and stopped clipping off all of the side branches. What a difference.

I'm hoping some pears set.

I had a rose bush do that last year. I think that variety behave differently. My neighbor has the same kind and it's over the fence and blooms in my yard as well.

Nice looking blooms! Last year all the fruit blossoms were killed off here in Ontario from early warmth followed by a freeze. I'll be looking forward to actually pick some fruit this fall.
