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.

June 8, 2006


























Here are pictures of my vegetable seedlings: basil, beets, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, peas, scallions, squash and tomatoes. (I forgot to photograph the eggplants.) It is another wet day and the seedlings are all looking soggy and ragged. I think the basil is having the hardest time and I've already lost a couple plants. Clearing is not predicted until later next week with more heavy rains coming tomorrow.
