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.

I was outside digging today myself. I've got 3 raspberry canes coming, hopefully, Monday. I was digging holes in the front yard; more like finding and digging up large ROCKS! I have enough rocks for a rock garden now!! LOL

And tomorrow will be even nicer! : )

I keep hoping to see pics of Skippy too. I just love that profile pic to the right. He is such a handsome dog!
