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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Everything looks wonderful! Hope you and your family had a wonderful thanksgiving. Judging the table, I am sure it went terrific.

Lower left is baked Butternut squash and sweet potatoes. It was really good. This is what we did:

Bake 5 sweet potatoes at 400*F til slightly soft (about 15 min).
Peel 2 butternut squashes. Cut into 1 inch cubes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a large casserole dish 30 min at 400*.
Peel sweet potatoes, cube, add to squash and mix. Sprinkle with brown sugar and dot with butter. Bake covered 30-45 min at about 375*.

Thanks. It was the brown sugar that faked me out. I was thinking quinoa or something :-)
