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.

wet aerial view

wet aerial 2

Wow. An empty garden. And yet another wet day. I finally got out there to weed on the 4th, which was finally a dry day. But weeding pretty much emptied the garden. Next time it dries up a bit, I have lots of seeds to plant: beans, soybeans, nasturtiums, kale, lettuce. Maybe tomorrow?

Bummer about all the rain. We should trade some rain for some sun. I could use a little more water from the sky.

You have a beautiful garden.

After a heatwave last week, we are having thundery showers with rain and some hail. Am thankful as it waters my plot and garden but too heavy and it knocks off buds and makes the courgette; cucumber and pumpkin flowers soggy! Your garden looks lovely and well organised, where's the Gnome?

The Gnome is under the giant oregano. (Trying to stay dry?) I'll have to get a picture of him soon. (What a great memory!)

The tomatoes are in the very bottom right corner - against the house. 8 plants. They are doing fantastic! Up to my shoulder and many golf ball sized green fruits. I may have to get the mozzarella cheese ready soon!

I love the stone walkway down the middle.

The garden looks so nice!

What will be planted in those empty spaces?

The Gnome pictures made me laugh, I love that kind of humour. I don't know if you got the story over there, a lady lost her Gnome, then started receiving pictures of him taken in locations around the world, on a lovely beach, on a glacier etc. Then he mysteriously appeared back in her garden. The story reached the press and a fellow confessed to taking him on his trip around the world. What a nutty but funny thing to do!

The weeds do seem to be taking over the garden at the moment. Mine are about a foot tall!
