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.

They are still there as far as I can see.

Are they missing for anyone else?

I know that sometimes the long list of topics or the archives will be missing and you need to reload the page. Sometimes they are only there on the front page and not on internal pages.

Like you, no snow coverage here in Southern Ontario. I just hope that there's enough ground saturation. At least the ability to see life pop up is quite easy with no snow! Great blog, btw. :)

Not much more in my patch at the moment,but there is some satisfaction in the thought that all that snow has broken up the soil underneath and it is ready for another growing year. Love to you and Skippy!

Things look neat and ready for spring planting in your garden. We are not quite ready for such things on our west county hill.

No snow here in wisconsin( live right by lake michigan) either, am loving it though...my pond is only half frozen and the little fish in there are still moving around. I have a garden window in my house that I am growing leaf lettuce and plant cuttings right now. Deb
