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.

Easter pansies

pansies to plant pansies
pansy flat pansies planted
I am one of the first on my street to plant pansies this year. One of my favorite flowers. I bought a flat of multi-colored black-faced pansies this year. I always love pansy planting day. I raked the all winter debris out of my front yard gardens and planted the pansies in groups - six plants per clump. They are scattered in between the tulip and alchemilla sprouts, tucked under the yew and rhododendron bushes.

It's so nice to see spring in your garden... and imagine the days when Coco, like Skippy, will be sleeping in a warm spot in the spring sunshine. :)
