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.

Great Picture! I didn't realize they were a faded sort of pinkish when young. Do you think it could be a female?

Hi, Your garden is wonderful! It is so great to see another local garden. I have a potager garden at home in Melrose. It seems that yours is very much like that too. Vegetables with flowers and herbs -the best! And your cardinal and bunny photos are great - this week, I had a wren land on top of my obelisk that has a - wren sculpture - on the top! Double decker wrens! Life is great -

Beautiful bird - Cardinals are my favorite & abundant in my yard. I love the dedication and passion you bring to gardening and this blog - it's infectious! In fact I started my own outdoors & vegetable gardening blog last month called LushGreenVA

The mature females have an orange beak. This young one still has a black beak.

Beautiful! Your photos are lovely. Isn't it a heartwarming time of year. At first light in the morning the bird song is wonderful. When I feel completely knackered, I think "if that little birdy can get up and go again ... so can I"!
