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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

I love the picture on the bottom left. It looks like the amaryllis jumped out of Kansas and landed in Oz!

I went ahead and bought the larger bulb last fall. It now has four buds on one stalk and another stalk coming up fast. Definitely a mood lifter.
