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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

our drought continues

Rain seems to go north or south of us. It's so dry here. I'm watering my vegetable garden, but that's all. Or regulations are to hand water only, between 6 pm and 9 am, so I go out at night (sometimes with a flashlight) and water.

We got a lot of rain last night but it came up the coast. I'd love to understand weather patterns, but I don't. Maybe we'll get your rain soon? Maybe it goes somewhere else. I think all our weather used to come from Albany and areas to the west of us. Apparently not somuch anymore. We're in some other pattern. I'm tired of it and the *** drought. The rain today was beautiful, just beautiful.
