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.

bushes by the house

bushes by house
These are the bushes I'd like to remove this spring. Definitely the two (rhodo and yew) to the left, and maybe also the yew at the right. There's also a very overgrown yew just out of sight behind the big rhododendron, which will also come out. I've also been thinking about removing the raspberry and blueberry bushes in the foreground. (Maybe too much removal for one year...) The berries are about 10 years old and did well for several years, but not recently.

My dad would like the rhodo and maybe a yew. Another small yew I may move into a space at the back side of our house. We've been thinking about how we will remove these plants. We'll need to leave a root ball. The plants are pretty big. Maybe they'll make it, maybe not. The main thing is to remove them and make additional vegetable garden space.

You would have a lot more light in that window, without the shrub in front of it, along with more veggie space!
