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.

A garden down the road





This is a garden a couple of blocks from mine.

Along the driveway, they have tomatoes, squashes and dill. A very nice tomato support system of wrought iron pipe, wood posts and twisted rope.

Along the sidewalk is a low stone wall next to a row of emormous plants of cabbage, basil, swiss chard, kale, spinach and brussels sprouts. It is all mulched with salt marsh hay. A great garden to walk by.

Solanum lycopersicum
