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.

Hi Skippy's friend,
Your garlic looks just like mine as do your beets and carrots.

I had a great garlic crop this year but did not get it all back in the ground in September so will have to plant next spring. We eat some but I mostly use it to keep slugs and bugs away - we shall see.

I have been digging up my chard. I planted too much. I know from last year that it will start by itself early next spring. I am going to harvest some then and see how it tastes.

So garlic grows in the winter? And if the ground is frozen, how do you dig it up? Or do you do this in the spring? I'll keep reading. Maybe the answer will appear. I'm only on December of 2006. :-)
