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.

not much green is left

the last of the garden 2compost binNov 8 gardenwet lettuce
Its a dark, wet November day. Yesterday I moved all my lettuce plants together into one little patch. The patch has several types of lettuce, endive, a bit of dill and some chard. Now I have less to cover up on cold nights. Yesterday I also cleaned out my remaining tender garden plants. The compost bin is quite full with memories of the summer season.

well I have certainly watched and been inspired by your garden's cycles this year- the fact that you're a northerner (hemisphere) also heelped get me through my winter. Spring will come again, it always does.

I look back at my summer pictures and am amazed at how different the yard is now. The seasons go very fast. My favorite is early spring. I will have to watch southern hemisphere gardening sites this winter.
