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.

winter farmers markets and CSA shares

There are a few Farmers Markets still open around here in MA. Even in the snowy cold of winter. Saturday morning markets in Wayland, Natick, and Greenfield sound great. They offer local honey, wool, dairy items, eggs, salad greens and lots of other things. I may have to find time for a country drive this weekend.

And Gretta (from Shared Harvest) just emailed me that she has extended season shares still available. Also, there will be a Farmers Market Fair Feb 25 in Arlington. 25 local farms will participate and you can find out what they offer and line up a share for the summer.
