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.

Last year my garden frosted hard long before Thanksgiving. But this year, it seems like we'll have fresh garden greens on the table.

Kathy, tasty looking greens! When do you typically plant your seeds for fall greens? The warm New England weather has been very good to us gardeners!

Can't wait for some of those greens!! What do you think you'll do with them? I've been seeing some yummie sounding salad recipes with dried cranberries, nuts, and blue cheese, and the winter greens, etc. Of course you can vary the nuts and the cheese to suit.

Oh whine. I covet thee greens. Hard frost one night in October here in Central Washington seriously compromised my fall crop of greens. But collards and kale still surviving. Yours are truly inspiring.

Hello from Larrapin Garden in the Ozarks. I haven't taken my usual weekly 'walks' around your garden via this blog -- I missed it!! I love how you have two gardens going now! There are community gardens just getting started here in Fayetteville, Arkansas and I'm so happy about that. As usual, your blog is great inspiration. Keep up the wonderful work!
