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.

google broccoli

google broccoli
I couldn't resist comparing the new Google image of my neighborhood with a nice brassica crop. The new satellite images were taken early in 2007, probably March it looks like to me. Definitely early in the morning - about 7 am. My vegetable garden is that big dark shady spot to the west of the largest head of broccoli. This really makes me look forward to my new sunny community garden plot!!

Brassicaceae

That's perfect. Our life is exactly like broccoli. Well - your neighbourhood is clearly broccoli. I wonder what mine is?
