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.

my side yard vegetable garden

aerial

I continued today with working on cleaning up my side yard garden. The rose on the fence always need a lot of trimming in the spring. I'm gradually clearing old leaves and last year's vegetable debris from the beds. Also removing weeds. The dandelions are especially vigorous this year.

Very cool. I am jealous. A group of us in the Richmond VA area have started a garden blog also.

Love your side yard garden. I want to put in some cold frames, in time.
Dandelions are great things to have. I know most people hate them, but if you will pick the flowers and make a tea with them you can make jelly, or of you need a sunburn remedy soak a wash cloth in the cooled tea, wring it out and put on the sunburn.
