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.

I love these! They remind me of my childhood because I remember having them in our backyard. The 'fuzzies' always made me smile :)

The are so cute! Here we have them during the Chinese New Year, an auspicious plant to have for decorations in the house. Although Im not celebrating the New Lunar Year, sometimes will buy at least one in trying to grow it, but so far not successful!

It's a beautiful picture. I like the white background with a splotch of brown creeping into the frame. It a subtlety behind the obvious pussy willow that says, spring is coming!

I planted this willow right outside my dining room window, so I could watch for spring without going outside. I leaned out the window to photograph these.

We have had some really nice spring-like weather recently, up to 50*F or so. Our 8 foot snow piles have melted back to about 5 feet. But I'm looking forward to more signs of spring.
