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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

april showers

gnome in the rain
The April rain is very peaceful - and wet. My vegetable garden is fully thawed now, but working the soil and planting peas will have to wait for drier weather, which may be towards the end of the week.

Great! If I had the time to garden yesterday , I would have planted my peas and some lettuce. I had hoped to do this, but taxes, work, dog, oh well, I just didn;t have time. I think they'll be fine, but I also think its so cold that it may not matter that I wait to plant next weekend.
