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.

garden poetry

putting in the seed
This is a great poem, so I am posting it again. This time the full version. With it are some photos of Skippy and my garden from last spring. Ahhh, the Spring. Soon another will come ....

Hi Skippy, I'm comidademama. I live in Cambridge and I need an help.
I partecipate in Energy Saving Day ESD is an annual Italian communication campaign dedicated to saving energy, check if you want the English manifesto

As I have a food weblog I was thinking to cook something, I spread the word and we are a lot.
But I can't find a truly local vegetables.
In my garden and surrounding I just found a bounch of squirrels, four leeks and a tiny group of mint leaves.
If I can reach you with pubblic transport would you help me giving me some of your vegetables?
Of course I will mention it in the recipe.

Many thanks in advance for your attention and, really, your garden is amazing!

I don't have any vegetables in my garden now either. Its all frozen solid! Even the kale froze.

The only kind of local vegetables you'll probably find now are stored vegetables: potatoes, garlic, winter squash, dried beans, beets, parsnips. Also frozen and canned vegetables. Some gardeners might be growing some small greens inside under lights.

From my garden, I now have a few frozen green beans left, some frozen basil pesto, frozen and dried chiles and some frozen sun-dried tomatoes. But not really enough to share.

Good luck.

Than you anyway. I still have some brave little mint leaves surviving in the garden.
Glad to meet you!
