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.

Berry net











I'm now working hard to defend my fruits and veges from bugs, birds, etc. This is our berry cover: a wood frame with nylon netting. We've used this system several years now and it works well to keep the birds out. We pull the netting up on one side to pick the fruit. Berries are ripening fast. Seems like it will be a good crop this year.
