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.

i've got mail

mouse in the mailbox 111 There's been a field mouse in my garden mailbox for a couple years now. I looked in today and seems he is gathering extra fluff for the winter.

I wondering if the extra fluff means that it is going to be a colder winter?

When I pulled my greenhouse covers out of my shed over the weekend, I discovered two mice had made a nest in the box with shredded grocery bags. I felt bad evicting the cuties--I'd make a terrible farmer with my soft spot for fuzzy creatures.

That mouse remembers last winter, i bet. Did you happen on any Wooley Bears? Maybe their fuzz was thicker, too. Isn't it strange how fast the seasons go?
