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.

wet and rainy

wet spider web wet fall garden plot For the past 2 weeks we have had rainy, damp, cool and cloudy weather. My front lawn is growing mushrooms. These photos are from last week (taken with my waterproof camera), but the garden still looks the same - wet. Its great for the fall crops.

I've been waiting for a dry day to work my garlic bed. Last Friday was dry, and I got time to plant my cold frame. Then we had a dry day on Monday and i was able to spread a few nice wheelbarrows full of compost on my still unplanted garlic bed. I was hopping to plant garlic today, but its raining now. Not sure I want to work in the mud. I will probably just stop by my plot and check on it, with my raincoat and waterproof camera....

Intrigued by your Egyptian walking onions—have been thinking about growing these this season. How was the topset harvest…I might have missed this earlier in the growing season—and how does the flavor compare to other onions when it comes to the top and bottom harvests? Best of luck to you and Skippy getting the garlic in.
