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.

my buddy....

Skippy didn't really want to pose for this photos, but he did. Such a good pup...

Skippy is 6 years old now. 42 in dog years. He's still running in the fall leaves like a puppy. I think he's looking forward to winter chill. He likes the cold and rolling in the snow. He'll sleep out on the snow when he can.... At least one of us is looking forward.

Love that first picture - when I was young we had a dog called Skippy (after the bush kangaroo obviously).

Does Skippy "help" in the garden? Our dog likes to dig holes.

Skippy would love to dig holes and do his business on things in the garden. I have a small fence to keep him out of the vegetable garden in the yard, since he can go out there unattended. At the community plot, he always comes in the garden with me, but is under verbal command. I let him dig with me sometimes in the beds, when I'm preparing soil or digging potatoes - what fun! Also, he has his own spot where hes allowed to dig any time. (Doing "business" is never allowed.)

Skippy helps in the garden by being my companion! And at the community plot, he's a very good guard dog.
