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.

This is a collection of photos of my harvests from the past two weeks.

We took a big bag of vegetables up to a cabin in New Hampshire and enjoyed these while on vacation. They are shown in the last photo above. I spread all the vegetables out on the chopping board. One of the consequences of sharing vegetables with a garden photographer is that you need to wait until the photos are taken to eat. My family was very nice to put up with this!

Upon returning home, many more vegetables were waiting in the garden.

I continue to have a great abundance of lettuce, which is a real garden treat. Every day we have a pile of fresh garden greens on our dinner plates.

OK, now I just hate you.

Just kidding.

That is the most gorgeous photo of your collective harvest on that butcher block, with the open wine nearby. If I could capture a similar photo of my own, I like to think I'd keep it at all times in my wallet as a constant reminder of a rich and rewarding life, well-lived.

Just love your photos.

Thanks! It took three days for my extended family and me to eat all of these vegetables while at our vacation cabin. We had a lot of fun preparing and eating and sipping the wine...
