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.

magazine photos

A few of my garden photos will be in the upcoming issue issue of GROW, a the vegetable gardening issue of Fine Gardening Magazine. I am really excited to see how they look in print. I don't think the issue is out yet, but I'm watching for it.

Congratulation's on the cold frame. You'll love it, I'm sure. I read today - Frank Gardner, author of Traditional American Farming 1916! - that if you keep the green stems on onions, garlic,shallots, ect, to 4-6 inches, you'll produce larger bulbs! Maybe try this on a few of your new garlic bulbs?

Amazing coldframe. What are the dimensions? How do you reach the back? How does it vent? I'm excited to see how things turn out. We just built some smaller ones using cast-off windows from our neighbors - planted rouge d'hiver, broccoli raab, parsley, wild kale, spinach and arugula. I moved my celery and onions out there too. I'll let you know how it goes.

I picked up a copy of Grow magazine before I read your post. I thought some of those photos looked familiar! Congratulations!

I barely got around to reading Grow and spotted your beautiful garden a mile away. Kathy, you should be writing a book!
