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.

Belmont Victory Gardens on longest day of the year

Our community gardens are beautiful right now. All of the 100-plus plots have been filled this year and there are so many active gardens. A lot of work has gone into these.

Yesterday Skippy and I wandered through the overgrown and rocky paths and took many photos of the plots. No sense in showing just my garden with so many other nice ones around! They look nice viewed as a slide show (June Victory Garden slide show).

By the way - tomorrow the local Boy Scout Troop will be doing work on our paths! They will remove rocks, bushes and debris from the paths so the mower can get through. I'll see if I can get some photos of the project.

Yea, I got some ideas from those pictures too. I saw some old wood framed windows that were probably used as cold frames for seed beds. great idea. Thanks for sharing.

I wish I was there! I just love wandering round other people's vegetable patch! I hope Skippy enjoyed himself too.
