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.

a wet week at the gardens

Wow! 4 days of non stop rain and drizzle after 3 months of dry weather. We sure needed it. And it was very pretty. The newly seeded fall crops are enjoying it. Skippy and I walked through the Belmont Community Garden paths on Wednesday in the drizzle and checked out the gardens.

Wet dog for sure! lol ~ Our garden is also showing signs of too much rain. Powdery Mildew is on the squash and pumpkins. I treated it and am hoping for the best. But I'm not complaining, we had been in drought stages for the past 7 years and this year we can't keep up with the lawn and the garden boomed. Peas are 10 feet tall and the flower beds are beautiful.

Peas! Wow. I just planted a few rows last week. I hope they have sprouted.
