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.

They are all so beautiful but the last one really is to die for. Do you know what the name of that one is?

The tulips were a gift from my aunt. They are Breck's Deluxe Perennial tulip collection. I curious to see if they will be perennial. Hard to believe. Usually my tulips disappear after a year. I planted these with lots of compost and bone meal. We'll see.

I think the photo at the bottom is called Halley's Comet, photographed when it was just starting to color up.

I'll put a link to my camera on the side bar soon. Its a Canon Rebel XTi SLR digital with a Canon EFS 17-85 mm lens. A fantastic camera.
