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.

Skippy's vegetable garden

garden june 25 2007

A couple of shots of my garden. Everything is growing like crazy. The pink rose on the fence, Dorothy Perkins, is at its peak. All of my spring veggies are producing well: The peas are ripe. Lettuce is delicious. I'm also adding cilantro, arugula, parsley, dill and garlic shoots to out salads. I see from this photo that its getting a little yellowish so I'll fertilize today. I want to make sure the summer veggies ripen soon.

Oh, a meme! Thanks for the tag. I love a meme. This'll take me a couple of days to come up with 7 things that are somewhat interesting.

I should also mention that I am this blog is on semi-vacation for the next 3 weeks as I am having all sorts of summer guests. 3 weeks of entertaining and "relaxing" with family. Cheers!

Beautiful garden - as usual!

I have tagged you in a meme called "7 Random Things About Me". You are supposed to reveal 7 things/habits about yourself. Are you thinking "Yikes!"? That was my reaction but I got through it and wrote my 7 random things.

I hope you play along!

Oops - I didn't see that you were already tagged before my comment. I guess your post will serve double duty!

Have fun vacationing, entertaining and relaxing!
