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.

OH my 4! I thought there were 2 eggs. Lovely picture. Makes my heart beat fast.
P.S. Unrelated Kathy but I realized yesterday that something ate my bigger cabbage family plant leaves too so I think I will use covering too as I was wrong with my "big plants are safe" theory lol.

Great photos of the seedlings and robins. Hope you caught that critter eating our other seedlings or fenced it out.

Ha Ha, wonderful. The birds are so busy, backwards and forwards with meals for their young. I marvel at their energy. How lucky we are to observe them, can't imagine a day without bird song.
