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.

birds in the woods

coopers hawk 063 - Copy
hairy woodpecker 019

I think these are a Cooper's Hawk and a male Hairy Woodpecker. There is so much bird activity in the woods and fields now. It is very exciting. Breeding is starting in earnest.

Lovely photos. I'm just back from a picnic in the woods where we saw red squirrels, a hoopoe and black redstarts.
