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.

my garden

garden
I've been busy with my camera today! In the upper right is the nice open area where the rhododendron was removed. My tomatoes have more sun now. In the foreground are garlic, carrots and beans. Looks like its time to clip back the rose. I'm planning to move the cukes from the back corner over to the sunny area left by the rhododendron.

Your garden is looking great! So green and LUSH! Have you harvested any Zucchini yet? I noticed from your vacation return pictures that they were getting to that stage where it's just a matter of days! Keep up the good work :-)

The zucchini will be ready in a day or two. There are lots of small ones out there. I just picked my first green beans today. The first chili pepper is nearly ripe too and the carrots are getting to a good eating size.
