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.

Skippy's new collar

Skippy's new orange collar

We went camping in the backwoods of New Hampshire this past weekend, so I bought Skippy a new collar. Bright day-glo orange - since its open deer season. I like the way it stands out again the drabness of the November landscape.

It was Skippy's first time tent camping and he did a good job. He hiked in the woods, guarded the camp site and then slept soundly. He had his own mat next to me in our cozy 4-season, two-"man" tent. Not the best weather to be outside. About 40F with a steady down pour all night. Good sleeping weather.

Camping? In a cold, cold rain? Your tent must be pretty watertight.
