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.

today's harvest

I pulled a big bowlful of cilantro greens today. I planted these last summer, but they came up and bolted, so I let them go. They self-sprouted a couple months ago. Today, we had a delicious salsa fresco.

Hi Kathy, I am envious of your cilantro. Mine are always thin and rage before they bolt every year also. Just curious. How many cilantro plants do you have that gave you that nice yield?

There are about 30 plants in this bunch. Another 30 still growing in the garden. I never get them to grow this nice in summer either. Yes I love the self-seeders! They are a nice surprise.
