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.

ready for the grill

dinner

We're now eating dinner almost totally from the garden. Just a piece of salmon from the store. The favas are great grilled whole and then popped out of their shells, like edamame. The potatoes and wonderful sliced and grilled with olive oil and salt. We have a big red Gold and a big Red Norland today - one yellow the other white on inside and slightly different tastes and consistency. And of course a zucchini.

That looks and sounds so good! I love the idea of grilling favas in the pod...I'll have to try that!

I love Favas. Are they easy to grow?

Favas are very easy to grow, but should have cool weather and lots of sun.
