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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, 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

This is what I picked today from my community garden plot. That's Suzie helping me out. I'll have to donate some of the butternut to the Pantry I think - it's probably way too much for us. Especially since I let a volunteer plant grow over my chicken coop at home and it's a giant plant producing another 4 or 5 squashes.

My butternuts are more like butternots. I'm really jealous for those.

Oh gee, what are "butternots"? doesnt sound good. Butternut squash were developed a mile from here (Waltham) so they are perfect for my area. Maybe another squash is better for you?
