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 garden work

We are expecting a good freeze tonight - our first - so I spent some time getting ready.

- Picked the rest of the pole beans, 3 lbs (!), and took down the vines and poles (and later made 5 jars of dilly bean pickles)
- Harvested the last of my peppers and pulled the plants
- Picked a couple small winter squash and a big bunch of lettuce
- Set up my winter tunnel over a bed full of greens by covering low hoops with garden fabric and higher hoops with greenhouse plastic
- Covered a small bed of lettuce with garden fabric
