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.

lichen on gray birch

lichen on gray birch

I will be experimenting with macro photos this month for a photo contest. I often look into contests, but have never yet entered one. Maybe this time. Its a bit of a challenge to find a good subject this time of year.

Go for it your photographs are great and admired by your regular readers, I am sure you will do well in the contest. Matron mention of frost reminded me that I had a frozen water stalagmite in my birdbath, how do you get a frozed upward drip?

The lichens are lovely - looks very suitable for framing, like those expensive black and white photos! You definitely should enter contests!

This is gorgeous. I agree with Dan. It's jewelry for the tree.

I will add a new post in the next day or two with the contest info and a set of the photos I and choosing between. Its a Boston Globe monthly contest. You can probably google that and find it.

The contest is to submit a photo that is interesting but hard to figure out what it is. It has to be taken this month. Final submission date is the last day of Jan 2010.
