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

Here's my handsome Skippy. He's nearly 6 years old now. Very dapper in his new haircut and still one of the fastest dogs around.

A fine looking dog, for sure! I have a couple of Labradors that graciously allow me to grow my veggies in their garden, too! (well, that's still up in the air but you know what I mean!). Hugs to Skippy though! :)

I just love to see dogs having fun together off the leash!
