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.

What a beautiful bounty! I can't imagine getting bok choi and broccoli this time of year. Where I garden in Southern Maryland, by the time the tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers start to come in the cabbages and broccoli are long gone from the heat.

Very good looking veggies you got there. I am loving them! Today I had to operate again on my squash and zucchini plants to get the borers out. I am eager to get more and one of each for the full season. Borers were very bad this time, I removed 6 from one of the plants that i JUST CLEANED LAST WEEK. Never happened to me before but I did read about this. My broccoli is still producing as well but I think I got the bunching one..lol..
