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.

snowy garden

snow covered garden

We got about 8 inches (as predicted).

The kale is just barely sticking out of the snow. I'll have to make some kale soup soon as its tastes best when picked from under the snow. I have a couple potatoes and a leeks for tonight, but will look forward to kale and kielbasa soup soon.

That is a familiar sight although we ended up getting 12 inches. A crazy amount of snow so early in the season!

This looks so much like my garden - what can be found of it anyway, hee hee. We got over 16 inches and it is still falling in central Connecticut. I am thinking of hunting down the kale I've got in containers outside on my porch, but it is still snowing so hard that I don't think I could dig it out - or even get it picked since it may be frozen! Let us know how the soup turned out!
