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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Another good week in the garden. I didn't know there was anything left to harvest. Thought small carrot and beet tops meant no roots. But when I pulled them I found lots of nice baby roots for both. Delicious!

And I hadn't looked close at my patch of fall greens to see the baby bok choy. These were excellent sauteed with garlic and ginger.

I was able to pick a full bowl of salad greens - some curly red lettuce, mizuna, cilantro, and other greens/purples whose names I don't know. (The arugula left from spring was too sharp too eat.)

How do you save your leeks? I had a lot more success this year than I expected and I have a good dozen or so more leeks still in the ground. If I don't do something soon the temps will drop and they'll freeze there.

My leeks just go in plastic in the fridge. I try to use them in place of onions anytime I can. Maybe someone else knows of a way to store them. Maybe freeze a big batch of leek and potato soup!

I'm curious when your last planting was to have the small greens + salad greens to harvest about now. Maybe it will help me plan for a November harvest next year!
