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.

clearing a new bed

tomato bed 1
My gardening project for the next few days is to clear out the area where I'm planning to plant my tomatoes this year - the area against the house to the right of the stone path. Today I moved a lot of perennials and violets and few tulips. A few more perennials to move tomorrow, then the bushes need to come out. Skippy kept an eye on everything going on.

Hmmmm... seems like Skippy could be a little more help since it is his vegetable garden!

It looks like a perfect spot for tomatoes. I bet you get digging help from Skippy?

Skippy has been doing some digging the past few days. I think he is excited about me digging up new areas. AAgrrh. I'd rather he NOT help. He is digging in my new flower area. The area I put moved the perennials into, from the new tomato bed. He's been digging some good holes that I will have to post pictures of soon.
