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.

It looks great! You guys did a wonderful job setting that up. Are you going to leave the grass or mulch or something else? I always struggle with pulling the weeds up in our mulch and sometimes I think leaving it grass would be way easier.

I am going to leave the grass in the paths. I love it. It got really long this week and then I cut it with a weed whacker. Looks beautiful and the soft grass and long newly cut hay on top feels really nice to walk through.

Eventually, I'd like to move the fence out about 1 foot and add a narrow bed along the front fence that will be all flowers to attract pollinators. I'll put a post and rail fence just outside the wire fence to edge the garden nicer and I'll add an arbor over the gate, probably with pale pink roses climbing up it.

Really nice and so different than last time I saw your yard. What a wonderful space.
