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.

today's harvest - chiles and broccoli!

harvest

Even as I was picking these Numex (Joe Parker) chiles they seemed they they should be stuffed. Chile Rellenos? I've never made them before, but these chiles smell so yummy, I think I will try.

And I was really happy to see some nice broccoli heads today. Its still my old spring planted broccoli plants. I never needed the space for something else, so they have stayed in just for the nice blueish-green of their leaves. With the cooler weather, they are producing some sparse heads.

Beautiful harvest! Love those anaheim chilies. They make good green chili sauce, spooned over enchiladas etc.

Love the harvest you have in your photo. We here in Luckyland are starting to think about planting out seedlings for the summer harvest.

Starting out this coming week with a few plants and the stagger them over the next 6 weeks.

Did you tackle the Chile Rellenos? They are one of my favorite dishes (out of course). Beautiful crispness in this harvest shot.

I have not yet made the Rellenos. I keep imagining them though!

Tonight we had garden fresh potatoes, onions and chiles with some local kielbasa. Delicious!
