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.

Infuse vodka with it to make an Italian liqueur called Finocchietto (a bit like limoncello, just with fennel).
You could make a pesto with it.
Roast whole fish on the grill atop it (or wrap fish and bake in the oven) I always freeze some to make stock with. If you can get shake some pollen from the flowers, it is nice to have on hand. enjoy!
