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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

the 4th of July !!! Cheers to the summer!

4th martini
Our 4th martini. Our 4th ribs. And Skippy's 4th nap. Not too bad. Thank goodness for a whole day of full sun. (perfect, if the Sox would have had won...)

I love your patio so much. Looks like a good time except for the Sox. We're Yankee fans at my house, but I still like you!

Ahh.. what a dog's life! Did Skippy manage to beg a few scraps from the BBQ?

Looks great...we did the 4th of July at our house - roasted a pig...and blogged it!

I was feeling down about my garden as I compare mine to yours but as my guests looked around they were impressed by the amount of flowers on my tomatoes I guess all the worm tea I have been using is working!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend - thanks for sharing your vast knowlege with the rest of us!!!
