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.

Eggplant blossom

My eggplants are tucked in among my perennials this year in hopes that this will keep them warmer. I have had terrible luck with eggplants in the past few years. I keep trying. They are one of the most interesting vegetable plants.

Oh wow -- THAT'S what they're supposed to look like! I haven't even gotten anything quite like that, and when I got a baby eggplant this week, it then disappeared, clearly eaten by someone who thought it might be tasty.

I wish we'd been able to make the eggplants happen this year, but I think they're going to have to just be chalked up to the try-try-again file.
