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.

snow on Skippy

Skippy came out with me to check on the kale. I love the way the snow collects on his thick fluffy fur and doesn't melt.

Skippy looks like he's dusted in confectioners sugar!

Oh that's so sweet.
Beats me how you live in the snow like that though.
Cheers

What happens when Skippy shakes? I'm skiing in the Sierra's and we could use some of your snow. The terrain is pretty bare. Global warming or just a dry, warm year?

HI Alice,

Global what? Actually, I happen to have An Inconvenient Truth on the TV now.... Thought I'd finally watch it.

We got 10 inches today (so far - its still coming down) on top of more than 30+ inches total snowfall already this season. Way above our usual levels.

I spent much the day shoveling and blowing snow. I wanted to make a snow man in the front yard, but didn't get time. Maybe tomorrow.

I tell Skippy to "shake" before we go into the house, and it all flies off him and instantly he's a dry black dog again. Such a good boy.

These days Skippy is wishing for a job, I think. He likes a challenge. Likes to show he knows what to do. Too bad he doesn't work for a fisherman. In the middle of the winter, we're doing a lot of sedentary and indoor things. He'll be happy when he can get back to guarding my garden plot. ME TOO!!!

Have fun skiing, sis.
