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.

new camera

Well, my old camera finally bit the dust. After 10,000 photos and 2 1/2 years, I dropped it (a Pentax Optio WP) yesterday (about the 5th time I've dropped it) and it seems like the shutter won't open. The camera store said $150 at minimum to fix it, so I bought a brand new camera! Very exciting. I got an Olympus Stylus 720 SW. Its shockproof (!) to 5 ft, waterproof to 10 ft, digital image stabilization, 7.1 Mp and a nice little body that fits in my pocket (or mitten). The battery is charging right now and I'm looking forward to trying it out tomorrow. If I can't dig in the garden, its nice to have fun with a brand new camera.

I've been thinking about getting a new camera - especially before spring - so I'm looking forward to what you have to say about this one.
