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.

fresh snap peas

snap peas IMG_6577

I picked a giant bowl full of snap peas this week. I was thinking I'd make snap pea pickles, which sound great to me. But I haven't done that yet and we're eating them pretty fast raw with dips and briefly cooked as a side dish. And ... kind of silly, but we did put a few in a martini. Grey Goose vodka and very fresh snap peas....

I'm so busy in my garden - ALL the time. I can't believe I'm a garden blogger and I can't find time to write about my garden because I'm too busy gardening!

Well, life happens too. My dad died and we are planning a service next week. It's one reason I'm in the garden - it's my favorite place.
