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.

edible front yards

I got an email I thought was interesting: someone is looking for front yard garden stories for a book. I love to see vegetable gardens in the front yard!

For this new edition of the book (Metropolis Books, 2008) we are
looking for more reports from across the country from those that have
decided to engage in "full frontal gardening". Have you replaced the
lawn in front of your house or apartment building with a completely
edible garden? We will be selecting one garden story from each zone,
with each contributor receiving a copy of the book. Questions and

We will need:
- a 500 word story about your garden
- 4 or 5 photos of your garden at the highest resolution (include the
street or sidewalk in one)
- your name, mailing address, size of garden, date established, and
USDA Plant Hardiness Zone

Too bad, I checked the sight and there are no zone 6 or 7 gardens wanted so my Massachusetts front yard garden is out!
