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.

so cold!!!

thermometer 008 Our temperature went down to -6.5*F last night. Ouch!! I had the ceramic heater going in the chicken coop and the small monitor shows their temp: 13.5*F. The girls were no worse for the wear, but we had a pipe freeze in the house. So far it seems the pipe did not burst, but we are cautiously watching as it thaws. I can't remember ever seeing the temperature this low in this area before. Brrrr!
