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.

purple power

Microsoft PowerPoint - Presentation1

The monthly photo contest theme at RAW for October is Purple Power

Royalty, passion, rage, sophistication ... purple is a vivid and versatile color. Let's see how creative you can get with it in this month's color challenge.

My purple photos are mostly shiny eggplants, beautiful cabbages, freshly picked purple calabash or Cherokee purple tomatoes, summer asters with honeybees and a few deep purple sunsets. Oh, and nice purple broccoli and purple potaotes. I assembled a bunch of my purple photos. Maybe I'll submit one, but how creative is a purple vegetable? Not.

Great Photos! I find that purple is one of the most striking colours in the garden, especially when paired with yellow. I think its one of the most popular colour combinations we use in our design office!

Wonderful stuff! Apparently purple and blue fruit and veggies have more beneficial health effects than others... well that's the latest science fad anyway!

That purple cabbage will be dynamite in a pork roast.

Purple potatoes sound interesting... I'll have to look into that.

Nice photos

The purple tomato looks beautiful. You "created" this tomato so creativity shouldn't be an issue :)
