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.

tomato bed

rain on dirt
I did succeed in preparing my tomato bed this week. I clipped the rhododendron way back (I couldn't bear to get rid of it), added 4 barrows full of compost and turned it all in. Then the rain storm moved it.

Solanum lycopersicum

Your soil looks so dark and healthy. I bet your plants love it. Ive been busy today too, mowing and planting and looking at the gardens.
