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.

peepers singing

The peeper frogs started singing today. They are so enthusiastic!

From Wikipedia: The spring peeper (Pseudacris crucifer) is a small chorus frog widespread throughout the eastern USA and Canada. They are so called because of their chirping call that marks the beginning of spring.
I'm hoping to make a planting calendar app based on natural events someday. I'm probably relearning what previous generations already knew. In any case, I think when the peepers sing, it's time to plant eggplant and pepper seeds indoors. And it's time to get ready to plant pea seeds in the garden next week.
