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.

good bye March

hellebores 056

Our forecast for April Fool's Day was first 12 inches of snow, then it went down to 1 inch, now is up to 2-4 inches. Whatever... Let's get it over with and MOVE ON.

My hellebores are blooming later than usual this year. I suppose because they were covered in 3 feet of snow most of the winter. Some years they're in bloom in December. Today, my white ones are fully open and the deep red ones are thinking about it.
