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.

cold frame ready for snow

cold frame 116
cold frame  118 cold frame 120

We may get a couple inches of snow tonight, so we pulled the tarp down over the cold frame. The greens are still fine inside. I'm hoping for a Christmas Day harvest of fresh green salad.

I harvested a bag of greens the other day when a friend came by. I gave her a Christmas gift of fresh greens and a few squashes and garlic from my garden.

That's so cool you'll have fresh greens on December 25th. I should really get my act together next year and try some off-season growing!
