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.

I wish I had an upstairs window to view my garden from! Everything looks so nice in your garden. It must be a lovely place to just relax and enjoy and wait for all those good vegetables to ripen.

Yes. Sometimes I sit on the pathway and watch it grow.

Love the aerial views. Was this photo taken on a rainy day?

The photo was not taken on a rainy day, but early in the morning (9am) with the sprinklers going. I have found that in the mid-summer, it is too bright for this aerial shot to work well mid-day. Plus the garden looks better when its wet. I took a bunch of photos mid-day the previous day that were terrible. The camera doesn't seem to focus well with the high light level. Rainy days work well too.
