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.

Another bird update

News on the nesting birds at my parents house: the chickadees and wrens have fledged. Robins and catbird are feeding their young big juicy worms and other bugs. I hear they bring back enormous mouthfuls of food and share it amoung all of the young. Mother Robin has become white and fluffy on her underside and seems to sit on the nest most of the time. It appears that it is Dad doing the feeding. Same with the catbirds. The Mrs is on the nest most of the time, even when people pass by on the walkway that is right next to the nest.
