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.

local CSA farms

Here's a Boston Globe article on our local CSA (community supported agriculture) farms. I read about this on the Belmont CSA blog and wanted to link to it here too.

Gretta has a nice quote in the article: "I think people are getting a lot smarter about the importance of a strong regional food system and about healthy food. They're getting smarter about living in ways that are environmentally friendly and the positive consequences of that," said Anderson, who grows her vegetables on a 1-acre garden on Glenn Road.

About once a month I head over to Gretta's farm and take photos of her beautiful crops. Many of these photos end up on her blog. Its about time for me to head over there and see what she has growing now. We have a well needed rainfall today and I bet her crops (and mine!) are enjoying it.

Our Belmont Farmer's Market opens next week: June 12th.
