This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

I'm a bit west of Boston, but the previous Boston record low for this date is/was -3F/-19C (1967). I'm amazed at how fast the temperatures are falling tonight.
