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 watched as I planted seeds in milk bottles in the kitchen.

Hey Skippy,
I LOVE broccoli - is your mom planting any of that?

Skippy won't eat any kind of vegetables. He is a very picky eater. You've never seen any dog like this. He likes about 7 things: liver, duck, turkey, butter, chicken, Evo treats and Merrick Flossies. I mix these things in with his Evo dog food and he does his best to sort it all by spreading it out on the kitchen floor. Then he eats just the good stuff. I do my best to mix it well so he eat some dog food. Aarrggh.

He does also like a nice aged parmigiana cheese, butter cookies, Merrick freeze dried lamb lung, and occasionally tomato sauce.

You're smart and sensible to like broccoli Emma. I like it too! Even my 15 year old son likes broccoli. I'm looking forward to planting some soon - as soon as I can find another plastic milk bottle.
