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.

new community garden

new community garden
This is a new community garden in Cambridge. It looks so neat and bare. I'm wondering what it will look like with active gardens. Skippy and I walk by here often to check for activity. None yet.

If those squares are single plots, they look pretty small...

It is a pretty garden, the way it's laid out.

It seems like security might be a problem in a place like that. Is your new community garden protected with a fence or anything?

That's true. Small plots and no fences between the plots. There is a secure fence around the perimeter though. I'm very curious to see how it works out.

My plot will be in an area that looks completely different. Lots of home made fencing of all different materials between plots. A random and messy look. I'm looking forward to getting my assignment. Only a few weeks now until April 1.

Have you decided yet what you will be planting in your plot, as compared to your garden at home?
