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.

soggy crocus

soggy crocus Everything is cold and soggy, if not icy this spring. These are some sheltered crocus in my yard - trying their best to bloom.

Our local plant grower is having hard time with the cold weather. She's pulled plants out of the greenhouse and into her heated garage. I heard at Home Depot that all growers in the area are at least 2 weeks behind because of the cold weather.

Well, I'm pulling for the little crocuses. It would be cheery to see some color around here about now.

No, I think I'm the only one miserably waiting for warmth and sunlight! Its not easy when happiness resolves around a garden. I'm watching and waiting. Ready to go!

It seems spring may be coming finally, but I suppose it will come slowly and we still need to cool our jets and sit tight a bit. Sometimes the weather is dreary til the middle of May
