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.

grilled vegetables

grilled vegetables

This is our dinner the night of a harvest. Everything grilled outside: sweet potatoes, white potatoes, beets, carrots and some greens from my perennial (walking) onion.

To grill, my husband gets a nice hardwood fire going, then puts vegetable slices on and brushes with olive oil and turns them as they cook. He keeps them far enough from the fire so they can cook for about 20 minutes, but close enough so they brown nicely during this time.

Looks good. The potatoes look like they could be a replacement for potato chips. Yum.

That is such a lovely tradition of putting pumpkins on your doorstep this time of year. You only see it in the USA, I love coming over this time of year around halloween and thanksgiving. If people left pumpkins on their doorsteps over here they would probably get stolen, smashed by gangs of youths or nibbled by foxes!

All those things do happen to our pumpkins. But with so many for the smashers and stealers to choose from, most are generally not harmed. The nibblers are another thing - mine get more than nibbled every year. Often they end up mostly eaten by the squirrels.

Weird eyed pumpkin is my favourite.

I am going to attempt to copy the idea. :)

Jay, That weird eyed one was really fabulous when I first saw it (without my camera). That was a few days before this photo and pumpkin was fresher. A great pumpkin! Hope yours works well too.
