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.

So much is going on in the garden now.



The cukes, peas and yellow squash have just started blooming. And the pole beans have sprouted and are growing up fast. I planted some bush beans, lavender and sunflower seeds today. I don't know if its too late for them, but who knows, maybe it'll be a warm summer and they'll grow fast.

I think your veg. garden is great. does the path run along side your house? Skippy's not bad either.

Yes. The path and veg garden are along the house on the south side. the path is about 6 feet from the house with a flower garden between them. Thanks for commenting.
