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.

Field corn in Framingham, MA

I wish this corn was in my garden, but its in a field Skippy and I walked through Sunday at Callahan State Park. Beautiful corn! Its exactly twice the height of my 5 1/2 foot tall son. Since I read that corn grows to be 5-12 feet tall, this crop has done well. Ears are enormous! (The corn's ears, not my son's.)
