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.

home garden aerial

garden aerial

It looks messy now, but soon I'll post the "after" photo. I have great plans in action. My husband is putting in a new bed adjacent to the house - a large deep raised bed. And with the fantastic weather predicted for the weekend, I expect to clear out the old beds and transplant lettuce. Maybe even some beans seeds.

If you click here you can see how this area looked 3 months ago. Thanks goodness its spring!

I'll say. Thank goodness spring is finally here. With all the cold weather we had, I thought we'd never get really warm weather. Now watch me complain that it is too warm ;>

I remember the photos of your garden in the snow! I remember how easy it is to see a black dog in the snow! Things are just shooting up here too, we've had a lovely warm week.

I think your beds look very nice. I am working on the lasagna gardening method myself. It takes about 2 years to really get the results you want layer wise and I still have to dig into the deepest layer of dirt for the roots. But all in all I am very pleased. Put out tomatoand/or pepper plants this weekend. Hoping for the best.
