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.

today's garden work

rake edges of front lawn and clear out winter fallen branches
mow, lime and fertilize lawns
haul 2 truckloads of branches to Town DPW
finish mulching the back cottoneaster and peony bed
fertilize my blueberry bushes

I think I can start on my vegetable garden next!!! Yeah. It's about time.

My Master Gardener class this week was given by a professional landscape designer. I could definitely relate when she said a goal of design is to minimize the amount of lawn and the amount of mulched beds! I've spent 2 weeks tending to lawns and mulching beds. It's a lot of work!
