This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

today's harvest

harvest IMG_7813

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?
