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.

Mine will need to come out before the ground freezes solid. Probably in December. I have a lot of them.

luckily our ground doesn't freeze on the NW coast so I can harvest swiss chard, parsley, leeks and beets most of the winter...

I just finished pulling the last of my beets and winter radish. I’m working on pulling leeks and celeriac. Once we frost I’ll start pulling my parsnips. I hope they have roots down there. I haven’t gotten parsnips to sprout in years so a crop of roots would be a new thing for me. I’m jealous that you can pull root vegetables all winter.
