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.

Kathy - I thought about you, Skippy and your garden as we watched the Patriots yesterday! It reached 99 degrees on the back patio here so your snow looked very novel and refreshing! Take care and have a good day!

Oh yes, that wonderful freak storm....put a damper on my weekend plans on finishing up the rest of the garden for preparation of winter. We ended up with sleet and rain, everything was a sheet of ice, so much for rototilling!

Your snow looks great!! I cannot believe it--snow in October. I'm told that here in Boxford, Ma. we had 2 storms with snow.--- the first on Friday night with a dusting, and the second on Sunday with heavy wet snow that lasted awhile. I don't know how long as we were away.
