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.

Hello! I'm from Brazil and read your nice blog everyday. =)
I'd love have a garden like yours. I have to plant my vegetable at vaseplots! But my plants grows beautiful and healthy anyway.

Onions? It sounds tasteful!

Do you eat it onions leaves? I've eaten my onions leaves, and it gives a special flavour on plates.

Great plants! Great vegetable garden!!

Hi Lidia,

I do sometimes eat the green leaves from the onions. Tonight I made a salsa with tomatoes, onions, garlic, avocado,cilantro, and some greens onion leaves. Yummy!

But most of the leaves will go to compost and the onions will dry for storage.

I hope your plants do very well this summer1
