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.

empty chairs

There's not much to photograph in the garden right now ..... and with 12-18 inches of snow coming in tomorrow night there will likely be even less soon.

A couple of months and those chairs will be needed to have contemplative rest and a hot cuppa from the flask.

You should replace those wooden and plastic chairs with wicker furniture. Indianapolis
has a thick blanket of snow around this time of the year so my garden is practically nonexistent. Having wicker-based furniture makes it easy for me to move them around during these times,
not to mention they look good in your garden as soon as the snow melts. When it comes to
outdoor furniture, Indianapolis mostly have wicker-based ones.
