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.

varieties I wish I had in my winter bed

- More spinach! Next year I'd like to use this spinach variety chart from High Mowing Seeds to pick a variety for my winter tunnel.
- Some nice curly kale, like Winterbor and Redbor. I don't like the wild kale I have this year, which is like Red Russian without the red.
- Bok choi, at least a couple varieties.
- Bunching onions to mix in with all those greens.
If this year's bed works out, I'll add a second bed next year to hold some of these extra varieties.
