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.

finally planting in the garden today

Enough with the dog poetry - I'm finally planting today!

Peas, favas and a row of potatoes will go in. Beautiful sunshine and sort of warm. Photos later.

That's pretty cool that the Obama's actually ended up getting a portie. I thought at first you got another dog by the puppy photos.

I started my peas & favas a couple weeks ago in peat pots. I will be planting them out very soon. I hope my potato order gets here soon so I can plant them as well. It's great to start planting in real soil.
