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.

happy easter

easter flowers 061

Skippy is enjoying the pansies. I will try to plant then in the garden today - a good gardening activity for a beautiful Easter Sunday!

(Disclaimer - my son says I should be honest here and disclose that I put a treat in the pansies and Skippy is not actually interested in the flowers. However, it is an actual photo with only a little Photoshopping to fix the contrast.)

Happy Easter! Hope you have had your fill of chocolate. Great shot of Skippy and the Pansies. I put some in our hanging basket outside the front door last week. They are such an under estimated plant I feel.
Hope to visit Boston October 2012, will email you separately with dates etc. My email is same as when we discussed seed swap a couple of years ago, guess yours is same too, will try anyway.
Take care.
