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.

much too cold

cold spotty kale in bowl
kale in the snow
I'm hoping this is our coldest temperature of the year. 8 degrees F (or -13C)! Even too cold for my kale, which ended up with lots of little frozen spots on the leaves. Dinosaur kale is listed as cold hardy to 10F. I'm looking forward to the warming trend that is predicted for the coming week.

Kale (Brassica oleracea, Acephala Group)
