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.

Skippy and my frozen garlic

snow covered garlic Skippy in profile
I assume the garlic is doing fine down under the snow and ice. 70 days until spring planting, and counting.

Allium sativum

What kind of questions do you have? A new garden sounds like great fun!

Skippy looks well suited for the cold weather.

We keep his fur short, but its very thick and he tends to be warm even in very cold weather. He'll go out and nap on the ice at 20 degrees! To me though, this cold weather is not at all pleasant, and its just not going away.... Brrrr..
