This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

today's harvest - happy thanksgiving!

harvest IMG_0992 These are the greens I harvested for our Thanksgiving salad bowl. In spite of our normal weather for this time of year, we have bitter cold (20*F) and several inches of snow on the ground for Thanksgiving this year. My brother, traveling in to our house from western MA, has no power out in his area due to the snow storm. We will give thanks for the warmth of our homes and family and the abundance of our harvests.

Those greens look amazing! Do you grow them in a greenhouse? It's incredible how quickly we realize all we have when something is taken away (like electricity!) I'm glad your family had a safe and warm place to be for the day!

I bet the salad was delicious. There's just nothing like home grown greens. Hope you kept warm.
