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.

Nice pictures! I love to see different vegetable garden designs. It helps to give me different ideas.

I am going to be redesigning my garden area soon so I looking for ideas on what to use for the pathways. I was thinking of using decomposed granite but I'm not sure.

Tell me. What do you use in between the garden beds in the pathways? Did you use mulch, pea stone, or something else?

This is just fresh wood chips. A nice relatively inexpensive pathway cover. I didn't put anything under it - no landscape fabric. Though you can do that, newspaper, fabric or other to help block weeds. Fabric blocks weeds better but then once you get weeds coming through they're harder to pull out. Anyway, I got off topic - wood chips.
