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.

robins nest

robin's nest tree
I found out what the robin is doing with the hay. First she goes to the dirt in my backyard and scoops up some of that with the hay, then dips it all in the pond, then goes up to a nest about 40 feet up in our neighbors big Norway maple. I know robins build lovely mud-lined nests, but I didn't realize they'd nest to high up.
