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.

Harvest Moon


The moon looked very big and almost full tonight. It'll be full in two days - on Friday. The full Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. Its late this year, as it is usually happens in September. Often, we get our first frost at the first October full moon. I figure, if we make it past this moon maybe we'll have a late frost and an extended growing season this year. We'll see.
