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.

the gray before the storm

gray fields

I hear Boston has some weather moving in. This may be the last of our brown and gray fields. We didn't get last week's ice storm - only rain. But we're expecting 2 inches of snow tonight, another 6 on Friday and then a third storm on Sunday .....

Sounds like my daughter and husband will be getting the moving truck packed at the right time!

Kathy, I really enjoy your blog. I first picked it up because my daughter was in college in Boston and I wanted to see how you were gardening up there. The daughter is finished with school and moving to Tennessee, but I will continue to follow your blog for the quality info, good pictures and the cute dog!

Thanks.

Good timing!

I bet Tennessee is a great climate for gardening.

Tennessee is good for gardening. The rest of the family lives in SC now, but there used to be a wonderful farmers market in Memphis. We'll see how well the daughter does in Nashville. We did find a promising looking farmer's market there. She won't have space available for more than a container garden or two for the time being.
