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.

garden work

garden helper
4-11-07 garden
Another beautiful day. I turned over the soil in bed #3 (from the left). There's still a good layer of frozen dirt down there at about 6 inches deep.

You know, Skippy doesn't look like he's working all that hard ;-)

I always like seeing updates about your garden. You keep everything so organized. I'm going to try to have organized raised beds this year.

I think you're right Kathy. Skippy's just out there enjoying himself in the sun. I hope you can't find my coffee cup in the picture or you'll suspect I wasn't really working too hard either.

Tell that skippy that a watched tulip never flowers... :) (He's staying out of the garden beds, right? So that's all the work you want him to do anyway?)

Skippy is a really good garden helper. I'm very lucky. He doesn't dig up the yard anymore. And my new fence works good at keeping him out of the vegetables.
