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.

My newly transplanted trained pear trees are all set for winter. Skippy and I planted them with compost, mulched with fresh hay/grass trimmings, watered them well, added some new tree wrap to protect their trunks and secured their branches to the fence. I also added a bit of lattice to maybe give some extra wind protection. I'm considering giving them a different support system in the spring to allow the trees to stand up straight and not lean back against the fence.
