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.

garden web

garden web
A black and yellow garden spider has spun a nice web across my eggplant leaves. In the autumn, I often see these large female garden spiders on their webs waiting for flies. There's another one with a nice web in my tomatoes. I carefully reach around it when picking tomatoes. Spiders give me the willies, so I stay away from them and let them do their job of eating garden pests.
