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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

mystery tree - any guesses?

This tree is behind my garden. It's full of beautiful white flowers in the spring. Now it has tiny fruits that are shiny red. I wish I knew what is was.

Is it a chokecherry? I'm just guessing here.

My guess would be a pin cherry, but definitely a cherry of some variety.

I don't know. I'm starting to think it's maybe a boring ornamental crab apple. I think the leaves aren't as elongated as a cherry.

I tried this year for a fall crop of green beans . . . I planted them the first of August, but I think I should have planted them a month earlier. I'm new to gardening and learning by the seat of my pants. This year is my second garden and it is so much fun doing my grocery shopping in the backyard and fresh tomatoes . . . oh my goodness, they are like candy :)
I do hope that your peas develop before frost and that you get a few meals out of them :)
Have a happy day and keep smiling.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Reminds me of our crab apple tree when i was a little girl. Haven't seen the tree in 18 years, but that's my guess, too.
