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.

a discovery - over wintered beets and potatoes!

over wintered beet and potatoes\

I was amazed to find a pretty little Chiogga beet and two fingerling potatoes at my plot. They look great after that terrible winter. I'm looking forward to a taste of my garden tomorrow evening! (Maybe with some over wintered kale.) I'll have to search through the soil for more. I knew there was one end of the potato bed that I didn't search through good enough last year.

This is just the most fun thing --to find wintered-over treasures in the garden!

Now that would have been a nice surprise. Chiogga beets are my favorite, they are so tender you can almost eat them raw.
