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.

Great idea I am sure you will a big response. Bees need all the promotion they can get. Corporation and Transport for London are running a poster campaign dipicting bees in medical emergencies e.g. on a stretcher (gurney?) being taken for help with the title "Save London's Bees".

We plan to come to Boston next year, I am hoping to workout how far out your community gardens are so we can build in a visit, I can't come there and not see it in the flesh so to speak.

That would be so super if you stop by, Marian!! My guess is we are about 10 miles out of Boston. Let me know and I can help with transportation and give you a tour of the gardens!

Hi Kathy, that would be fantastic! Thank you for a lovely invitation and it would be great to meet you, your plans allowing, of course, I wouldn't want to encroach on your privacy. I will let you know when it is arranged and confirmed, hopefully September 2012.
I am looking forward to it already.
Wonderful!
