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 happened to this Romanesco cauliflower?

cauliflower Veronica IMG_0075 What happened to my mom's Romanesco cauliflower Veronica? It grew into a giant plant and now it has leaves between each floret. We've never grown this before.

Just happened across your blog and was pleasantly surprised! I especially love the ability to generate vegetable planting calendar adapted to my zone (8b, Toledo, Spain). Can't wait to try it out!

Now that I've found your blog, I'll be visiting more often because it reminds me of home and my mother's garden in Marlborough, MA.

HI Lady of LaMancha! Marlborough is not so far south of my garden. I love your yellow bird picture. -Kathy

Weird! Looks like a bunch of mini heads of romanesco instead of one. Reminds me of the kale/brussels sprout hybrid that came out this spring.

Kathy,
The yellow bird is a chiffchaff, which are very common here. They're the kind of bird that tilt their head when looking at you, an expression that I love in birds.

Is your Skippy a labradoodle? I had a similar-looking cockapoo growing up.
