This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

We had a fantastic Work Day at the Belmont Victory Garden on Saturday! It was really amazing to see how much work we got done!! And everyone seemed to be having such fun. Nothing like happy gardeners. I supervised the work details and assigned photography duties to a super photographer. He took 200 photos and in all of them, everyone is smiling! (Except maybe the rock moving crew.) I love to look back at all the smiling faces.

We also assigned 6 or 8 plots to new gardeners. Looks like we'll have an additional 20 or so ready to assign in a week or two.

By the way, that's me in the red jacket and yellow tee shirt.

HI Kelly, I just today finally got to see a copy of GROW (Vol 3), a vegetable gardening publication of Fine Gardening. My cucumber martini feature is on page 58. (Makes me thirsty!)

Also on page 83 and 85 are photos of my garden. They did a really nice job with these articles.

Great stuff. It's lovely to see people getting together and enjoying themselves even though the work is hard. I bet everybody went home glowing from the fresh air and exercise.

I wish I had more friends to do this with. I enrolled in a gardening class so I'm hoping to get more acquainted with like-minded people.
