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.

teeny pumpkin

pumpkin
Here's my tiny little pumpkin. Its even smaller than it looks. I'm leaving it on the vine to make sure its fully ripe. The stem is starting to turn brown, but there's still some green on the fruit. No frost in the forecast, so I think its fine to leave it to ripen longer.

Pumpkin -- Cucurbitaceae spp.

I've been cruising around your Skippy's Backyard blog and now this one. I'm impressed with your beautiful vegetable garden, your photography and your beautiful skippy. I have a 'Skipper' who's part Aussie Cattle Dog and Aussie Sheepdog. I'm not fishing for visitors to my garden blog, but will mention it here so you can visit if you wish. I mostly post on my cooking blog and seldom encounter other gardening blogs, especially one as lovely as yours.
