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.

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!

Ciao

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!
