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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

march comes in like a lion

Another snow storm is coming at us!! 8" predicted here. I'll get a photo soon. (just what we need - another snow photo....)

While bemoaning the weather, I looked up what was going on in my garden last year on March 1. Pretty much the same. Snow. Cold. But the good news is that by the end of March, I had lots of sprouts and there were crocus and hellebore in the yard. I'll keep that in mind during tomorrow's snow fall.

I have to say that we had an absolutely gorgeous weekend here in VA! Bright, breezy, with a perfect hint of warmth in the air! Spring seems right around the corner! I have seen several robins and the first daffodil of the season. The beach on Assateague Island was absolutely beautiful, too! (PS - I turned the heat off and left a window open today (Monday) for the dogs to enjoy the air!
