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.

traveling south ....

Well, this gardener is heading south. The ground here is frozen, the garden is sleeping. Its a good time to visit family, hang out and reminisce a bit.

I'm feeling lucky to have a sister in Tempe Arizona. She may regret her recent move to the desert southwest, as my extended family is gathering at her house this holiday weekend.

My contribution for the big turkey dinner will be a potatoes and greens casserole with vegetables I grew. Silly enough, the vegetables are packed in my luggage for transport across the country and assembly on Turkey Thursday. That, plus a nice loaf of squash bread made with zucchini I froze midsummer.

I'm quite near you (in AZ) today, and the weather is perfect...not too hot to have the oven going, so here come the turkey and the punkin' pies!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope someone saved those turkey giblets for Skippy :-)

We have a nice lab named Beja here and I gave her a tiny taste of giblets. Beja always wants to eat more but has to watch her weight.

I sure do miss Skippy!

We had off and on rain and sun but the temp is really nice here in Tempe. Cheers! (have to run now and eat pie myself...)
