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.

balmy (hot!) fall

I can't believe it's November 3 and NO FROST yet. This is over 3 weeks later then our average date of Oct 10. It's a very odd season here in the northeast. We're up in the 70's today.

Same here. No snow yet, but from record warm to record cold in the space of a week I think. It seems crazy. But I think changeable weather and abrupt falls have been normal here for many years. We’re down into the low 20’s tonight with lots of wind.

Not low 20’s, but high teens tonight here. Brrr. I hope my chickens are snuggling up out there.
