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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

pea planting advice

As I was looking back on my blog for the previous post, I noticed that an old piece of planting advice is:

"When red winged blackbird females return and when chickadees build their nests, it is time to plant peas."

I read that a few male male red wings have been spotted around here this past week. I haven't seen any. I will watch for them and for nesting chickadees.
