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.

Bird's eye view

I'm doing a bit better putting panoramas together without seams, but I have a terrible problem with a dirty camera. I'm looking forward to bringing it to a shop for cleaning tomorrow. I suppose it makes sense that it would need some maintenance once in a while. Anyway, this photo is the garden from upstairs with my 12 foot tall tomatoes and dahlias. Our weather has cooled off into the 50-60's at night, 70's in the day. The garden is still growing. I recently planted some Swiss chard and I'm still seeding lettuce every few weeks. Best crops this year are my basil, which is nearly ready for a big second harvest, and the tomatoes, cukes and carrots. (From looking at this picture, next year I'll have to consider extending that path that leads to nowhere. Maybe some stepping stones across the backyard.)
