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.

mom's garden during ANOTHER March nor'easter

mom's snowy garden IMG_1853 Arrgh! (Or as my sister wrote, AYFKM!!?) We're in the middle of our third nor'easter in 10 days. The first was 2 inches of heavy rain with very high winds and lot's of coastal flooding. The second was about 8 inches of very heavy wet snow that brought down lots of trees. This one is a blizzard that will give us 2 feet of fluffy snow with high winds. Some years, I'm out planting peas about now.

Right there with you. At least I have some seeds started under lights so it feels a little like spring is coming, but this is ridiculous. Peas definitely not going in any time soon...not with a foot or more of snow over the bed! Maybe it will melt and dry out quickly. Oh well. Nothing to do today except start some more seeds inside.

I'm trying to delay my spring seed planting by a week or so. While it is just what I want to do now to try to lure spring and forget winter, I'm afraid we may have a late spring. The broccoli goes in next, then the tomatoes.
