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.

skippy on the day before a haircut

skippy 067

Its a big day for Skippy tomorrow. He's getting a short summer haircut. He's maybe one of the only dogs in the world who loves a bath. He wags his tail and jumps up into the tub! But then, his fur is so long right now that probably any dog would feel better with a summer haircut.

Chorizo got his summer cut last week. He does not get a bath at home just long walks in the rain which this year has been many. The two of them look like brothers.
