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.

me in the garden

me pulling carrotsme and skippy me and skippy 2

My sister got hold of my camera and took photos of me and Skippy.

Those are raindrops on my shirt. We had a few more of our spectacular downpours today. Why not show our CA visitors what New England weather is like! My sister and I got soaked in the garden.

Aww, Skippy! He's really a great dog, and a good gardening companion.

I just started my own gardening blog (http://graduallygreener.wordpress.com/) and I mentioned you in my latest post! Those tomato seedlings you gave me have gotten big - I can't wait until they start setting fruit.

Amelia, I like you blog and will add a link soon. Glad to hear you are settled in DC. Your cayenne is growing like crazy, but I'm still trying to get a nice photo of it. It has a 1-2 inch pepper on it already that I just noticed! Maybe it will turn red soon.

I just love that dog. I would do anything just to pet it for a lil bit.

Your garden looks amazing. Totally amazing.

I am soooo envious! I have "high mountain" (Tehachapi Ca.) garden, my tomatoes are only at about 8"-12" high, the only items I have been able to harvest are lettuces, and onion
family. Squashes are doing well, beans are doing terrible this year, potatoes are going bonkers.
Anybody in California that wishes to share info? Please feel free to contact me naltieri55@gmail.com
