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.

spring flowers

How wonderful that spring is here. Finally I have flowers in the gardens. We got about 2 inches of snow late last night. I was worried when I saw it accumulating, but it melted by noon today. The soil is mostly thawed now. In some areas of the garden I hit frozen soil about 4 or 5 inches down. But I'm thinking maybe the peas can go in soon. Maybe this week.
