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.

Grilled summer squash

Finally a yellow summer squash!! Sunday evening I picked my first one. I sliced it in 3/4 inch slabs, brushed with herbs in olive oil(rosemary, parsley and garlic), let it sit awhile, then grilled and ate it.

I love grilled squash and have never grown my own. Will do so this year. You know what is incredibly beneficial about reading this blog? I know when the food is ready to harvest! You make this so exciting. I have been reading about vegetable gardening the way a mad fool writes a thesis due in two weeks and it is DAUNTING! But you make the goal seem attainable.
