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.

so much rain this week

I checked my ran gauge last Sunday and took this photo. I forgot to empty it and I bet its overflowing now. Its pouring again. Great weather for the greens I'm planning to use for Thanksgiving.

Quite the oddity this year - more rain in the winter than in all summer. News seems the same worldwide; rain hits at a very bad time, crops lost, etc.

Given we Indians (from India) expect at least 3-4 months of solidly wet weather that's quite normal. What's your take on it?

We had a wet summer this year and last, and very snowy winters this winter and last. I think its a pattern we're in here in New England. I'm betting it'll be a snowy winter coming up and another wet gardening season next year....
