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.

harvest celebration plans
I posted a new sign on my gate today. (My son says no one will ever read all that.) But maybe they'll read the free food part.
I'm really excited that Gretta Anderson, a farmer from Shared Harvest CSA, will come a speak. Her topic will be "Late Blight: Sharing the collective experience of local organic growers this summer". I can't wait to hear what she has to say. (I may FliP and post it, if she doesn't mind.)
I got a fantastic box of free seeds in the mail today. From Botanical Interests. Out-of-date seeds. Beautiful packages. They donated 65 packages of all different types. I'll hand them out to everyone and they can swap if they want.
I heard rumors that gardeners are saving big zucchinis for the giant vegetable contest! I wonder how big a zucchini can get? I'm hoping my big pumpkin will win. I thought I had a good chance until this afternoon I spotted a really big pumpkin in a nearby plot - much bigger than mine. Oh well.
