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.

A baby tomato!!! Yes!!

I get really jealous reading blogs of gardeners in other zones. Especially http://earlysnowdrop.blogspot.com/. I mean, holy cow, she already has tomatoes, and beans, and peppers, and squash ….. Well, my first tomato is now on the way. (If it doesn’t get washed away.)

I am now sustaining the salad bowl with garden lettuce. The lettuce is unusual this year – it doesn’t have any bugs in it. No slugs, or miners, or crawly things. Maybe they’ve all been washed away? I won’t complain. I'm on my way out now to seed another patch with a nice mesclun mix.

Solanum lycopersicum
