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 and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Everything there looks wonderful, but the beets look especially good to me!

Cherokee Purple tomatoes are my favorite, I have grown them every year for the 5 years I have grown tomatoes. This year the first clutches were rather mussy from all the rain we had but the later ones have been wonderful.

The tomatoes were lousy. I don't know if they were overripe, but they got all sorts of little rotten spots on then immediately after I brought them home. Some vegetables just don't make the trip in my bag well - from garden to home - usually with a dog walk in there too. Oh well. Good for the compost.

The lettuce crisped up really well in cold water and was delicious! Enough for 3 nights - 6 salads.

The radish are an excellent variety, very crisp and mild.

I'm looking forward to enjoying the beets and greens tonight. Ahhhh... They are the best.
