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.

fresh snap peas

snap peas IMG_6577

I picked a giant bowl full of snap peas this week. I was thinking I'd make snap pea pickles, which sound great to me. But I haven't done that yet and we're eating them pretty fast raw with dips and briefly cooked as a side dish. And ... kind of silly, but we did put a few in a martini. Grey Goose vodka and very fresh snap peas....

I am hoping that you are well, and that you will post again soon. As a CT gardener, I like to compare notes about how your garden is doing. My tomatoes are late this year for some reason, and appear to be suffering from blight due to all the unusual moisture. Leeks, beets, cardoons, and squash all doing well. Best regards.
