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.

Harvest day!



A big harvest today! It was such a beautiful warm and sunny day, I really enjoyed my few minutes of "work" in the garden. Lots of beans - both bush and pole beans. A few tomatoes, several hot peppers, a lot of cukes and several baby yellow summer squash. The best - three big eggplants. I've been looking forward to picking these. Tomorrow I'll make eggplant parmagiano.

I am impressed by your harvest in early October. My garden is just about done, and this weekend it will be ALL done.

I'm enjoying the garden and am in denial about the season ending. (But I see you're in zone 5. I'm a full zone warmer in 6a.)

Those are pretty eggplants... what's the variety name? I grew the shorter, darker 'Ichiban' this year--they have a more rounded bottom, too. I would like to try different kinds next year, though, because they're so good roasted in olive oil and a little sea salt/cracked black pepper.

The variety is called "Classic".
