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.

a bluebird is here!

Last year the bluebirds arrived at Rock Meadow by April 10. On this date several were here. I've been watching for them this year and finally one is here. I think this year is running about a week later than last year for blossoms, birds and weather.

Always fun to watch the birds arrive. Bluebirds are especially pretty. We don't get them here.

We had a woodpecker about a week ago. I guess he was camera shy because every time I tried to take his picture, he'd go to the other side of the tree where I couldn't see him. They are fun to watch.
