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.

This is an aerial snap shot of our community gardens that I came across today. Looks like late in the day on about April 18, 2007. The resolution is amazing! I can see that I had cleared and turned my plot, but there's no fence up yet. Seems to me Google had a lower resolution version last time I looked.

I love the orderly grid with no straight lines!

If I didn't know better I would have said it was in Europe. It's positively charming - though I imagine a bit of a bother - do people complain about irregularly sized plots?

No, they don;t really complain about that. If someone gets a small plot or one they don;t like for any reason, they can have first choice for picking a new one the following year.

oh, this needs to be a postcard! Or framed artwork; it is so lovely. I am into aerial kite photography just for the hope of shots like this.

It is amazing indeed, like a tapestry.

You can get a really good view from Microsoft's Bing.com website. I put in 304 Mill St and just moved over a little. With that site you can rotate the view as well. What cool tools we have these days!

Bing.com image is nice too. I had never heard of this. I think that image may be a month older than Google's. I can't see any of the work I did on my plot starting April 2007.
