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.

work in the dirt Saturday

Today is a big work day: CSA volunteer morning at Gretta's farm. Then we are installing a fence around my community plot.

All plots are $25/year. They range from about 10 by 20 ft to about 30 by 40 feet or so. Mine is 15 by 24 ft. Last I heard there were a number of plots still open here.
