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.

snow day

We are being hit with a blizzard today. Over a foot of snow is predicted. I added food to the bird feeder this morning and it's rapidly being covered up. Juncos, blue jays, titmice, and song sparrows are braving the wind and digging down for the seeds. There's been a chickadee and a bluebird coming to the feeder too, but I wasn't able to get their photos.

Here in New London, CT, the birds have been feeding constantly at my backyard feeder, where I made sure to put out four kinds of feed last night. I too got a woodpecker, as well as a visit from Papa Cardinal, who I haven't seen in months. Those birds are brave!
