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.

happy new year!

It looks like Skippy's resolution this year is to catch up on his sleep!

Well, he had a big night out. Skippy was a lucky puppy to be invited out to party on New Year's Eve, but then (like many of us) he's paying for it the next day. Oh well...

We spent the last hours of the year with family friends - adults chatted and enjoyed beverages and snacks upstairs, downstairs kids played Wii mostly, and Skippy and his girlfriend Bella (a lovely black standard poodle) went up and down and bit each others' ears. We almost missed midnight - but we did catch it in time and gathered together to count down, cheer and bark. Yippee! Welcome 2009! We're hoping for a better year.

Thanks Bren.

I spent hours today figuring out my seed potato order. (Fedco) I'll post about this tomorrow I hope. I've never ordered seed potatoes before.

Definitely looking forward to planting!

Looks like Skippy has the same resolution as our Chiots. She also was invited to New Years and had a blast with her boyfriend (a Jack Russell named Ollie).
