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.

Good grief! Your harvest is huge and looks so healthy and fresh.

Lettuce, broccoli, Chinese cabbage etc is finished in Virginia until we start new crops in early fall. Beans, edamame, peppers, basil, tomatoes are coming in fast. Beets and onions are holding their own. Irish potatoes are starting to bloom so we should have new potatoes soon. (This is my first year for potatoes.)

I want to thank you for inspiring me to plant Irish potatoes and sweet potatoes.

This is amazing! Oh my goodness! I do a bit of gardening myself, but in no way do I yield that much! And every time I do get something awesome, a squirrel or birds eat em'. :(

Good job! I hope to see more inspiring harvests in the future!
