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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

snowy halloween garden

Copy of 013

After a day of melting, this is my garden. We got about 3 inches of the white stuff on Saturday. Way less than other places to the west of us.

A big branch fell in the backyard that will need to be cleared with a power saw. I hope the weather warms and stays snow-free at least til next weekend so I can clean up my gardens. I was still picking peppers and basil last week and had done minimal clean up. I guess its time to prepare for winter!

I hope for your sake that this was just a freaky one-off.

...And still your garden is beautiful, even beneath three inches of snow!

We got lucky in NE Ohio and missed out on the snow. My garden hasn't seen it's first frost yet and there are actually still tomatos out there somehow! I know the white stuff isn't far off though and it's about time to put my green baby to bed.

Oh my, strange weather world wide. May have to pack my thermals as we hope to visit Boston early October next year. So looking forward to the tree colours and history.
Keep warm and snow free!!
