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.

cucumber salad

I was surprised yesterday by finding a hiding cucumber. It was in between the lattice of my trellis and I hadn't noticed it before. So we got a spur-
of-the-moment cuke salad. I found a recipe in The Victory Garden Cookbook, Marion Morash (one of my favorite's) and modified it to use things I had in my 'fridge:
1/4 cup plain yogurt,
some chopped dill and mint (both fresh from my garden)
several cloves of garlic
a little gray salt
some lime juice
Mix together, then add sliced cucumber. Serve on top of lettuce. Yum. It was good.
