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.

final winter statistics

Dark, cold and snowy.
This winter Boston got 51 inches of snow.
For 24 days the temp didn't get above freezing.
Clouds covered the sun for 65 (of 90) days.
And I've never seen such messed up streets.

Its sure is nice to feel the spring sun!

As a transplant from the Finger Lakes region of New York, I feel like we had the most "normal" winter I've ever experienced here.

Which means by local standards it was a stinker!

Hi,isn't is cheering to feel more light each day and warmth of the sun. In the street outside our house we have an ornamental cherry blossom and today it filled right out, the bees are buzzing and enjoying the blossom. I love the energy this time of year provokes and it is warming to know folks the world over feel the same. Thanks for your tips Kathy our allotment people were talking about the Whitehouse veg patch today 3,000 odd miles away ...
