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.

in my garden today

My late fall garden is nearly empty, but a few plants are left. I have a tiny late crop of red curly lettuce and other salad greens. Some nice braising greens (bok choy) too.

I thought the parsnips were too small but dug down a bit in the soil and found some nice roots. (I planted the seeds August 1.) I will leave them a bit longer - maybe until spring.

The last of my nice leek crop is still in the ground, though its time to harvest them. I've been pulling the biggest as the season progresses. Lots of leeks this year - nice as my onions didn't do well.

How do the bees get in there? Do you remove and add fresh the soil every year?
