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.

garden in the rain

We've gotten stuck in a wet weather pattern for most of this week. I'm curious to check out my rain gauge at my community plot.

Most of my vegetables love this weather and are growing like crazy! If I skip a day of going by my plot, I appalled at how much plants have grown. My potato plants are enormous! And the peas. The favas, onions and carrots seem to enjoy it too.

Your vegetable garden looks great - so many different kinds of vegetables :) We are waiting here in Poland for the rain a lot, since it didn't rain for at least 3 weeks.
Greetings,
