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.

flying squirrel

This is not really a vegetable gardening topic, but I wanted to share these fantastic photos my dad took of the current occupant of the bird house in his backyard. The critter is a northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus). Very cute! She has a whole family in a house that wrens usually use.

She is a cute little devil. All we have is one of those little red squirrels.
