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.

Hi, haven't sown one seed yet, must get going. We did Red Russian Kale, it was lovely young in salads and great when mature. Plus it is pretty in the over-wintering plot. Hope your thaw is under way and not too hazardous!

I wasn't going to do kale as I don't eat it much, but, yes, it is so pretty in the garden. I will plant just a few. Maybe will make some Portuguese kale soup with it (I love that!) or some oven-roasted krispy kale.

Our thaw is proceeding. I am finding that the dogs and I can't walk on any trails now. Even the ones that were nicely packed have turned to some consistency that won't support dog paws or even snow shoes. We sink in a foot or so. So we are staying in for now. The good news is the snow pack is down to about 1.5 ft I would say. And lots of rain on the way for the weekend.

We will stay in, bathe and groom the dogs, and plant seeds!!!
