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.

sweet sweet

sweet 006 I dug up a big ol' sweet potater today!

I'm holding off on digging the bed 'til after a frost kills the plants back. But its not like a bed of squash where you know what's growing, what you're waiting for. I've stuck a fork in the ground a couple times in the last month to see if I find anything and both times i found teeny little sweet potatoes. Third time today, and I found a giant!

It looks like a white fleshed sweet potato. Just over a foot long. I planted red, orange and whites sweets last spring.

And it looks so lovely in with your still life arrangement of squashes, apples and pears!
