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.

Spring comes very fast once it starts.

Those three images together sure do make a nice picture. Almost like paint colors for a room.

Kathy,

I love your blog! It has so inspired me to garden. I had forgotten just how relaxing it is. Your site ROCKS!
Keep up the good work - I know you inspire so many people. Hugs to Skippy, too.

Beautiful spring colors...I am so used to seeing some shade of green when I open your site, that the pink made me sit up and smile. Are there any pink vegtables? Great photos!

Thanks!

I should look for brighter vegetables this year. I do hope to have some bright orange, pink and striped tomatoes. Pumpkins are nice and bright. And of course my purple peas are always pretty. This year I will also do companion planting and mix flowers with veggies. I have marigolds, nasturtiums, asters, daisies, hyssop, and bright orange cosmos.
