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.

basil harvest

basil harvest

I like a nice big garbage bag full of basil at the end of summer. This one should get us through the winter with plenty of pesto.

basil (Ocimum basilicum)

HI Mom!

I'm so glad you got a computer of your own!!! I'm so excited to see comments from you!

I was planning to harvest this year's crop today, but it doesn't look like I'll get around to it. (I've been working all day.) Its a big job to process all that basil. Maybe tomorrow.

love, Kathy
