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.

a toast to the end of gardening season

garden martini
I think this is about it for my vegetable garden this year. I have one tomato left from the big box of green tomatoes that I picked last month. Pretty much all of the green tomatoes ripened. Outside, I just have carrots, garlic sprouts and parsley left in the garden along with my cover crop of winter rye. We've had a couple of hard frosts and the garden soil is nearly frozen. I'll take a few pictures of the garden plot during the winter - and I am looking forward to planning next year's garden. But for now, here's a toast to a productive and enjoyable season. The beverage is one of my newly invented garden martini's - carrots, celery, cukes and olives!

Nice garden, and very nice blog you have there.

I wanted to talk to you about a project that I'm working on but could not find any contact information on your site. Drop me a line when you have a chance and let me know how I can get in touch with you.

I know I'm a real gardener because I am more attracted to the veggies than I am to the gin!

Cheers to a wonderful season!

I love gardening, but I always enjoy an ice cold Friday evening Martini! Its part of our relaxing and celebrating the end of a work week. Or anything else that needs celebrating ...
