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.

old new chair for my plot

I made a great find yesterday. (How I love trash day!!) Someone left a beaten up old Adirondack chair at their curbside. It needs a new board here and nail there. And a fresh coat of paint. (I'm thinking green.) It'll be perfect in my plot. Its so comfortable! And nothing like the flat arms of an Adirondack chair to hold clippers, seed packages, camera and beverages! I look forward to sitting in it and watching my plants grow.

Great find, what is the origin of an Adirondack chair, I have only ever seen them your side of the pond.

Great find indeed. I'd love to find one just out for the trash. I don't think the plastic copies are quite the same. Enjoy it!

that does look comfy! And with a flat surface for a glass of wine too!

Great chair! Reminds me of Kenny Chesney's song, "Old Blue Chair".

My Dad came by my garden last year and there was no place for him to sit. I think I'll repaint the chair blue - maybe a different shade. That's a great song about the Old Blue Chair.
