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.

Love it! I save little rocks from hikes, important places and add them to my terrariums or garden. It's a great little reminder of where we've been.

Lovely display of stones! I learned the meaning of stacking stones whilst travelling through the Himalayas. At the highest points, we would get out of our 4WDs and stack some stones to pay respect to "Jomolungma" (meaning mother goddess) the Tibetan name for Mount Everest. It was a fine tribute indeed.

What a lovely collection of stones.

I collect stones and shells from different places, but had never thought to arrange them. Mine usually get put into my bubbler fountain.

I have long since forgotten where each one came from, but I still know that it was one of many wonderful places.
