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.

Birds have fledged

News from my parents is that all of the birds have now fledged. The catbird babies snuck off sometime mid-week and the wrens and robins made a commotion of it yesterday. My parents were occupied the whole day, it sounds like, watching through their binoculars and worrying about the fledglings, which they said looked very vulnerable on the lawn. But no hawks decended, no cats, so it seems like a success.
