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.

dinner for the chickadee babies

chickadee with worm

The chickadees in the yellow bird house on my back patio are frantically feeding their young now. Back and forth every two minutes. Where do they find all these worms? (My garden!!! - can't beat the free labor!)

By my guess, the chicks are 15 days old today and will fledge tomorrow. I'm hoping for photos.

What a great picture! Not easy to get. We have similar birds here in the UK, but their names are not so nice - I do like chickadee rather than Tit!

I have been following your blog for a while and love it, will be interested to see how your veggies grow.
