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.

my patio

morning patio

My patio is set up for summer already. Seedlings are sunning all over the place.
The yellow chickadee house is in the upper right. They're bringing soft tufts of grass to the house now. Very busy. A bunch of big empty pots are waiting for flowers. I think I'll mix some herbs in too, mint, basil....

Very nice! Looks like a very relaxing place to just hang out. Especially on a day like today.

Such a warm and inviting patio. I'd like one of those big heaters but here in NC we'd not need it very often...

I'd love to have a glass of Cabernet there after work! Looks great. What a great sight after a long winter.

Looks like the perfect patio to relax on and enjoy looking at the veggie patch, then I look at all the work that's gone into making it look that good, do you ever sit down?

Hi, Kathy! You patio looks so refreshing for summer, although this photo was two years ago. Those table and chairs is perfect for an outdoor breakfast. You're doing a great job in your garden, btw.
