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.

(from June 2008 Bon Appetit, with lots of modifications)

Vegetables: In olive oil, sautee chopped garlic, baby carrots and sliced squash about 3 minutes. Add sliced beet greens and cook about 1 minute. Add spinach, turn off heat and toss until spinach wilts.

Gremolade: Chop 1/4 cup basil and parsley. Add 1 T chopped capers, grated lemon peel, and 2 T olive oil. Mix.

Cook linguine. Mix with vegetables and gremolade.

(Cook and serve beets separately.)

Serve with grilled fresh Alaskan salmon and a nice cabernet - on the patio, with a big family gathering.
