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.

Yes, things are growing surprisingly well.

And yes, that's Skippy's spot. He likes to stand guard the door. He enjoys being there and it can be hard to pull him out of the garden sometimes. (Me too)

at least the gloom makes the green look pretty?

I'm trying to find that silver lining...it must be here somewhere!

So much space! So much crop! Your garden looks amazing. I bet the other gardeners look at your plot in envy ;)

Plot envy!? Maybe. I certainly get this when looking at other plots in BVG... There are many big, active plots this year.

Lookin' good Kathy! Is that you corn in the foreground? Looks like they are coming along very nicely. Mine didn't come up for some reason; and I had sown 2 kinds of seed. Maybe I'll try sowing again.

He's being such a good boy. I'm afraid mine would want to dig.
