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 tomato harvest

harvest of tomatoes

I picked a bunch of green tomatoes to ripen inside. I gave half to my mom and this is my half. The plants are still up in the garden and look fine, though the tomatoes aren't growing much any more. There's not much light left as the sun has fallen below the neighboring house.

Wow, you still have tomatoes! Awesome. Our plants have perished awhile ago.

I made a delicious green tomato cake from my end of season green tomatoes.

I have the same shade problem in the fall although it is the neighbors hedge.

These look great. I hope to come close to that next season.

My tomatoes in the shade started producing late, but the trade off seems to be that they go longer into the fall. No frost here still.
